Nutella Drop Cookies

Shortbread meets Nutella in this deliciously soft and crumbly cookie.

It's my favourite time of the month: Secret Recipe Club reveal day!

If you don't know what Secret Recipe Club is, seriously check it out. It is an amazing group of bloggers cooking and sharing recipes from each others blogs. It is a great way to get to know other bloggers, and try out some of their creations.

This month, I was assigned Sally's blog Bewitching Kitchen. And from this awesome blog with an awesome name comes a truly awesome author. Sally is a biochemist (super cool!), fitness fanatic and lively dog owner. She even has a "science" tab detailing her research. And, thankfully, another one of her interests is food.

I could get lost in her recipes.. and have done so over the past couple of days. While many of her recipes are savoury (aka: not something I make too often), I have found some sweet recipes that I really want to try. I mean, doesn't "Post-Workout Chia Yogurt Bliss" sound like something you could eat for days? I have bookmarked it, and will be back soon.

But what I really want to talk about are these cookies!!

I was not expecting this kind of texture in these cookies at all. It almost tastes like shortbread and Nutella made a delicious soft and crumbly baby.

These cookies are addicting as heck! I am not ashamed to admit that I ate a handful of these cookies over the sink as a replacement for dinner on Friday.

...Okay, I am a little ashamed of that.

But that is just a testament to how good these cookies are! And perfect to stick inside a little one's lunch box as a back to school treat. I know I will be making more taking a couple to work with me next week.

What you'll need:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Nutella

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and icing sugar until smooth. Add in the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour one cup at a time until fully incorporated. Beat in the Nutella.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop the cookie dough onto the baking sheets.
  4. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on pans for around 5 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

Thank you for reading A Taste of Madness. You can stay connected with me here:


  1. Delicious looking cookies and that despite the very few ingredients. I would love to try them, I bet my kids would love them, they love anything which includes Nutella. :)

  2. Isn't Nutella the food of the gods? Now, I need to advise you on the proper way to eat cookies by the sink... one leg should go up midway on the thigh of the other leg, which I call "flamingo pose"

    it is classy. Goes well with munching by the sink... ;-)

    thanks for the write up and so glad you enjoyed the cookies!

  3. Ha ha "soft and crumbly baby." You have a way with words and have convinced me I "need" these cookies. Love Sally's blog and would have very hard time deciding what to make!

  4. I bought my very first jar of Nutella just a month ago to make some fudge, and now you've convinced me to buy my second jar. Those do look good.

  5. Oh yum! I can see why you picked this recipe. Who could resist such perfect cookies?

  6. Nutella is my true love. I want a cookie!

  7. Mmmmmm! Hahah, I myself have been on a cookie-baking roll as well over the last couple of weeks! I shared your nutella cookie recipe from before the other day actually! But have made two batches of other cookies since... I cannot stop!

    These sound wonderful, and I like crumble biscuits too! Having grown up on Scandi butter biscuits - these here are something I can definitely dig! Thanks for the recipe Cathleen :) Hope back to work goes well :D xx

  8. A shortbread and Nutella baby? YES! I want a cookie, badly. Love Sally's blog, and you did it well. Wonderful SRC choice! -- Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious

  9. I love Nutella and these cookies look good.

  10. These cookie would be great for this christmas, so I have to mention it in my blog :) Thanks…
