Cooking with Anita Marcela: Nutella Cookies

These gluten-free cookies can be ready in 20 minutes. You only need to mix the ingredients, shape the dough balls, bake the cookies, and eat them all! They are delicious, the taste of chocolate hazelnuts and the salty touch that the peanut butter brings will make you want to eat all the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven.

Nutella Cookies perfect for playdate with kids

Make small balls with your hands and place them on the baking sheet, leaving space between them because the cookies will grow in the oven.

Bake for 8 minutes. 

Cookies are best preserved in airtight containers or sealed bags, thus maintaining texture without being affected by moisture. However, these cookies are so delicious that it is almost impossible to store them for several days.
