Winters and Baking are quiet synonymous! Love the smell of  freshly baked cake or hot n crisp cookies, just out of the oven ……Ummm… And with the Christmas festivities around…its time to fill up cookie jars to enjoy the winter chills with a hot cuppa Coffee and crumbly cookies and cakes !   I love the taste and flavour of Nutella , but I choose not to dilute the delicate flavour with chocolate or coffee….Not that it does not tase good…but I love to devour every bit of the delicate hazelnut flavour that nutella offers… Using nutella as it is was a challenge,considering the runny nature of the spread…. So I dropped spoonfulls of nutella over a foil and put them in deep freeze for about 30 mins.. And used them to stuff my cookies…… So heres a Nutella Surprise …… soft cookies with mushy nutella center!



  1. Drop spoonful of nutella on a foil and freeze it for 30 mins or till they solidify.
  2. Sieve maida with baking powder and mix it with sugar. Add melted butter and rub them with finger tips with flour. Add lightly beaten egg and mix till you get a thick semi solid dough. Add milk if the batter or dough is too solid.
  3. Grease palms with oil and flatten the batter on the palms. Take out one nutella drop at a time from the freezer and place over the dough and seal it with the remaining dough. Place stuffed dough over a greased baking tray.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg C for 15 to 20 mins , until the cookie crust just browns. It should be light brown. Do not overbake the cookies . They are slightly soft. Overbaking might burn the stuffed nutella.
  5. Cool a bit and serve. These cookies can also be stored in airtight jar for a week or so,...thats only if you and your family resists these tempting goodies!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
