Nutella Sandwich Cookies with a Creamy Nutella Filling!


I adore Nutella. Who doesn’t?! Well, I’ve heard there are a few people who actually don’t! Can you believe it? If you’re in the same camp as me, the love-love-love Nutella camp, then these cookies are for you. They are fabulous! Seriously!!! They’re a soft, chewy, cookie sandwich with an incredible creamy Nutella buttercream filling. I mean, pass the cookie plate, STAT!!!

You can make the cookies smaller if you want to yield more cookies.

By June 6, 2011



Make Cookies:

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2.  Cream butter and both sugars with an electric mixer, on high speed, about 3 minute until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3.  With the mixer on low, add the egg and vanilla. Add the Nutella and mix well.
  4.  In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium and mix just until the dough is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5.  Using a small ice cream scoop form the dough into balls and place on greased cookie sheet.
  6.  Bake 8-10 minutes. Let cookies cool about 5 minutes then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Make Cream Filling:

  1.  In a large bowl mix all filling ingredients with an electric mixer, on high speed, about 3 minutes until light and fluffy.


  1. Spread about 1-2 tablespoons of filling on the flat side of one cookie. Top with another cookie, flat side on filling.
  2. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling

    Yummmmm! I love nutella but for some reason it hurts my teeth, I think maybe because it is too sweet? Either way I still have two jars of this stuff in my pantry. I will have to give these a try.

    Honestly, Kathleen, I nearly fainted when I saw this post today. I love Nutella in an unhealthy way and have yet to make cookies with it. This recipe is over-the-top! Can't wait to try it. Thanks for making my nutella-loving day.

    Yum, I love a rich chocolatey cookie like this. The filling makes it extra special. When I get my next chocolate craving this cookie will be at the top of the list.

    I had never even heard of Nutella until I met my Italian husband – at some points my daughter is like “don't buy anymore – I want to eat the whole jar!”

    They look amazing. Love that you turned the Nutella into a butter cream, just plain Nutella might have been too much! Too sticky and sweet. I would love to try these.

  31. Simply Life

    oh. my. gosh! those cookies look INCREDIBLE!!!

  32. Katie

    how many cookies does this make? a batch of 24 cookies to make 12 sandwiches or less?

    • Kathleen

      Hey Katie! I’m really sorry but for the life of me I can’t remember! I’m trying to get better at posting the yield of a recipe. The problem with baked goods is unfortunately I often start tasting the dough and one thing leads to another and….Well i mess up the count! I promise I will exert more self control in the future. I Hope you enjoy them.

  33. Rachel

    I just made these last night (and am pregnant so didn’t eat the batter) and got 13 cookies sandwiches. Next time I would probably make them smaller (use a flat TBS instead of a small cookie scoop) as I think they are pretty rich. I also had some frosting left over. Need to come up with some better ideas than eating it off the spoon 😉

    • Kathleen

      Thanks so much Rachel for letting me know how many cookies you yielded from this recipe. I think they’d be great smaller. I have to confess, I bought some fresh croissants and seriously enjoyed the left over frosting!

  34. Smule

    I followed the recipe but somehow got a dry dough and the cookies didnt look anything like the picture. Not giving up tho. Rolled remaining dough into a sausage and put in fridge. Gonna slice up and try again this evening. Hopefully better result this time 🙂

    • Kathleen

      I’m not sure how you got those results! I just checked the recipe to make sure I didn’t make an error. It’s all just as I made it.

      • Smule

        I finished the dough last night. Bit crunchier, but so yummy once i added the nutella cream on them 🙂 Will make again.
