Nutella Sandwich Cookies

Well, the bambino had his first day in kindergarten today. It was bittersweet. He was already somewhat chipper and ready to participate when they lined all the kids up, although I think for a little while he was a little hesitant about it all. But he was smiling when we tearfully exited his classroom, so I knew he’d be fine. It helped that there was a meeting for the parents right after school started, so I could compose myself. Still, once I dropped Jay off at work (I took the day off), I came home and promptly got to work on a couple baking projects, the first being Nutella Sandwich Cookies.

Nutella Sandwich CookiesI’ve made these before, but it’s been a long while. They’re always a hit when I make them, and this time around, a batch is for an old blog friend’s belated birthday. Eugene and I became friends back at Blog City (as did Sacha and I). Like Sacha, we’ve never met in person, but have kept in touch over the years. He jokingly suggested I send him some desserts, and while I haven’t yet figured out how to ship cupcakes in the mail, I CAN mail cookies! And Nutella is loved by virtually everyone (I know, there are people out there who don’t like chocolate and wouldn’t eat Nutella, but I imagine they’re few and far between), so it was the perfect excuse for making Nutella Sandwich Cookies again.

  1. Hi Rachel, I can't find your email address on your site! Would you be willing to shoot me a quick message? I've got a question for you. Cookies look amazing, by the way. Nutella is magical. Thanks, Laura Andrews
    • They are so very very good...I think I maybe had 2 sandwiches myself, set aside 3 for a coworker, and my husband polished off the rest! I'll have to make more of them soon!
