  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 320 degrees F.
  • Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the butter with the sugars until light, fluffy, and combined.
  • Next, mix in the egg just until combined and after that add the Nutella. Mix to combine and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Stir in the flour, cornstarch, and salt. Do NOT overmix.
  • Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop dollops of the batter and place it on the cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!



  • It is important to use room-temperature ingredients.
  • The recipe specifically asks for brown and white sugar, this way we add moisture and crispiness to the cookies.
  • Do NOT overmix the flour as it will result in tougher cookies.
  • For GF cookies, just use 1:1 gluten-free flour.
  • The cookies are ready when the edges start to brown slightly.
