nutella cookie sandwiches

in celebration of superbowl sunday and some fabulous friends of ours coming over i got out the baking mittens yesterday!

on the menu, nutella cookie sandwiches:) which i found on pinterest and they linked me, here.  due to personal taste and some things i think needed changed, i have changed up the recipe a bit.  

1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
6 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup Nutella

6 tbsp. unsalted butter at room temperature
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt
3/4 cup marshmallow fluff
1/2 cup nutella

preheat oven to 375
in a small bowl whisk the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.
in a large bowl cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar. 

 in large bowl, add egg.  add nutella until combined, then the vanilla. 
add dry mixture to wet mixture until combined.

line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.  spray the foil, coating well.  using two spoons, scoop a ball with one and scrape it off onto the foil with the other. 

bake 8 minutes, allow to cool before frosting.  do not overbake or they'll become crunchy!

to make the filling, cream the butter and sugar in a medium bowl.  add powdered sugar and beat until smooth.  stir in vanilla and salt.  mix in the marshmallow fluff and nutella, and whisk until light and fluffy.  if the filling is too soft or runny add more powdered sugar as needed.  put filling in an icing bag or ziplock bag and place in the freezer until cookies are done and have cooled down.

once the cookies are ready, remove the bag from the freezer and cut a tip off of the edge.  place 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling onto half of the cookies (approximately 14). 
 top with remaining cookies to create sandwiches.
note//my cookies turned out a little flat, i have changed the recipe to prevent this.


  1. I love that you tried these! Hope you enjoyed them as much as we did. I suspect the flatness stemmed from the cake flour because it is so fine-textured.

    Thanks! Have a great day -

    1. We did Chris! I actually used all purpose flour when I made them but am recommending cake flour to hopefully make the cookies a little more dense/hearty.
