Happy World Nutella Day ~ Nutella Pistachio Cookies

Happy World Nutella Day! I adapted the peanut butter cookie recipe from this cook book to create a new one. Simply delicious!

Nutella Pistachio Cookies
(Makes 3 dozen)

  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup Smart Balance (softened)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios

Combine ingredients in a medium bowl. Scoop dough by the tablespoon onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes.

After you remove the pan from the oven, bang it hard against the counter top to get the cookies to fall and crinkle. A trick I learned from making this recipe.

Enjoy the day! Thanks Sara and Michelle!

  1. I had to immediately pin these. I absolutely love pistachios and think they would taste so yummy with nutella. Need to try these someday.

  2. nessa - Welcome! Thanks for the pin and for stopping by. Hope you get to try the cookies! : )

  3. Mmm, the cookies look and sound so delicious. Must try this recipe. I just happened to stumble onto your site.

  4. mjdresselbooks - Welcome and so glad you found it! Let me know how you like the cookies. :D

  5. OMG!!! Nutella pistachio cookies! While I have Nutella in the house, I don't have any pistachios! They will be at the top of my shopping list for this week. Can't wait to try them.

  6. chris - I made them again during the storm, but used peanut butter instead of Nutella. Those were great too! I got pistachios that come already shelled so they were easy to use. Let me know how you like them!

  7. I've never tasted Nutella. Never been brave enough to. Hoping someone will have some one day and I can taste and see if I like. I did make oatmeal cookies that were delish. My husband was pleased. I tend to only bake sweet stuff when we have dinner guests or on holidays. You must have a lot of discipline to bake so much yet remain so svelte!

  8. can-can - No bravery is needed! Just buy a little container to start. I think you'll be glad that you did. Thank you for the kind words. I have to increase my discipline even more. The treadmill is getting a lot more use now! : )
