Nutella Cookies

My sister, Laura, and I wanted to do cookies again since they’re really easy to make, don’t take much time in the oven, and are perfect quarantine anxiety relievers (for the few seconds that they take to chew). Laura had some Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter that she was trying to figure out how to use and I stumbled upon this great recipe that only requires three ingredients and cookie butter is one of them! Unfortunately, I’m not super close to a Trader Joe’s and I wasn’t going to venture out to find some of their cookie butter before baking together, BUT, as you may have read in my previous post about Nutella Donut Sandwiches, I had a tub of Nutella that I was trying to finish before it expired and I realized hazelnut spread is close enough to cookie butter that the recipe should still work. I was totally right! These cookies were so easy to make, so delightfully pleasant to eat, and they just FLEW in my apartment. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! As we were baking, our parents, aunt, and friend (based in Barcelona),  hopped onto the Zoom call to check out what we were baking while the Global Citizen Together at Home Festival was going on via YouTube. It felt like such a globally unifying moment all around.
