Nutella Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookie


The other day I was sitting here, on my usual couch, thinking (Normally it's dangerous when I start the thinking thing..) I really have a craving for something -- but what ?

Knew I had 4 jars some Nutella and Cream cheese and a light bulb went on in my head, well, more like those red blinky things along the road....

Anyhow, this is another recipe I made as the blinky lights hit me in the kitchen.  Guess what, everybody loved them !

When done this is quite a large Cookie (not sure if cookie is the right descriptive here).

I made most with the filling baked INSIDE the cookie but just to try, I made a few with the Nutella (cookie on the right) on top. Must say, I prefer the Nutella inside...

Here's what I did:

Nutella Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookie:


1 1/2 cups Flour  (I always use Cake Flour)
1 t Baking Powder
1/2 t salt
250g (8oz) Cream Cheese, softened
1 stick (125g  /  1/2 cup) Unsalted Butter, softened
180ml Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 t Vanilla Essence
1 cup Tennis Biscuit crumbs (or Graham)
1/4  - 1/3 cup Nutella

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) and line a baking sheet with baking paper. The paper I use need no extra spraying, but if you're not sure, spray it lightly with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Mix the Flour, Baking Powder, and Salt in a bowl an set aside.
3.) Beat the Cream Cheese, Butter and Sugar until creamy - about 2 minutes. Add the Egg and Vanilla and beat until well combined.
4.) Reduce your beater's speed to low and add in the Flour mixture, keep beating until a dough has formed.
5.) Refrigerate for 30 - 40 minutes - dough must be firm. Remove from fridge and roll into balls (slightly bigger than a golf ball). 
6.) Make an indentation in the ball and add a teaspoonful of Nutella inside - just take the sides of the dough and fold it over the Nutella ("sealing" the Nutella inside).
7.) Roll the balls in the Tennis biscuit crumbs, coating all over - then press it down slightly as you'd do when making patties. (but not too much!)
8.) Place on the prepared baking sheet - leave enough space all round as these cookies expand quite a bit during baking. Bake 15 - 18 minutes until nicely browned.
9.) Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 15 minutes on the baking sheet - the cookies will be quite soft and need to set a bit before handling.
10.) Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before serving.

The amount of Nutella added may seem a little for such a big cookie, but I think it had just the right bite, I mean, you do still want to taste the sweet cream cheese-iness as well ...

Now I need to get back to my Craft - project, so that I can share those details with you as well, in the hopefully  near future.

Bye Bye,

Linda
