Chocolate-hazelnut cookies so easy it's silly — deliciously silly, that is

We love to bake, but — if we're being totally honest — the fewer ingredients we have to gather, the better. That's why these three-ingredient Nutella cookies are so awesome. Well, that's one of the reasons, anyway.

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.
  2. To the bowl of an electric mixer, add all the ingredients, and mix until well combined.
  3. The mixture will be thick but should be moist enough to roll into balls the size of 2 tablespoons.
  4. Add the balls to the baking sheet, and flatten them slightly with your fingertips or the bottom of a glass.
  5. Bake for about 7 minutes, until they are cooked around the edges and still slightly soft in the middle. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then cool on a baking rack.
  6. Continue until all the cookies have been made.

Note: You can also roll your cookie balls into some sugar to give them a little sparkle. For best results use Nutella from a freshly-opened can, not older, dried-out Nutella.
