nutella and orange cookies (1 of 1)

A little Nutella for your Wednesday. I think Mondays, and Wednesdays call for Nutella. And maybe Friday too, in celebration of the weekend.

This is Nutella dressed up for the evening. You see, I made shortbread cookies, and swirled in some Nutella. Then I made a buttercream spiked with orange juice. Sandwich two little pieces of magic together, and: BOOM! You’ve got one chic cookie on your hands.

Prepare yourself for a party in your mouth.

As you can see my buttercream is a little runny, maybe it’s cause I stacked them on top of each other. I really don’t know, but it was being cranky. So be sure you add enough powdered sugar to your buttercream to be thick enough to stand on it’s own.

Other recipes with my infatuation of Nutella: Crepe Cake, and Classic Nutella Crepe

1 1/3 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

3 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup Nutella

Heat oven to 350

Cream the butter and sugar together in the electric mixer. Add the vanilla and egg. Mix again. Add the flour, mix until just combine. Stir in the Nutella. Roll out about 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough and place on a greased cookie sheet. Using a cookie stamp (Something like this), stamp each cookie down. Back for about 10 minutes, or until just starting to change color. Let finished cookies cool on a wire rack.

Orange Buttercream

1/4 cup butter, softened

about 2 cups powdered sugar

juice of 1 orange

a very small amount of red food coloring

Beat the butter in a clean mixing bowl. Add the powdered sugar, then the orange juice and food coloring (just the tiniest amount). Mess around with the sugar to juice ratio, until you get a good thick creamy buttercream.

Sandwich the buttercream between 2 cooled cookies. And you can now thank me for that party in your mouth.
