Gingerbread Hazelnut CookiesDecember 4, 2014 4 By EngineerMommy
Would you believe these delicious Gingerbread Hazelnut Cookies were made from only three ingredients?! Yes, not including the sprinkles, which I consider optional, these yummy cookies were a breeze to make, and they feature the seasonal and decadent flavors of Gingerbread & Hazelnut!
I love how these cookies are made from a boxed mix. With two young kids occupying my every moment, I don’t have time to engage in marathon cooking sessions in the kitchen. I like kitchen shortcuts – ways to be more efficient in the kitchen and save time (and money, if possible). By using a box of Gingerbread Cookie Mix, I can whip together these easy and delicious Gingerbread Hazelnut Cookies in no time!
These cookies are a treat for the palate. They are both soft and slightly crumbly. They are chocolate-y, thanks to the hazelnut spread, but they also have that spice typical of gingerbread. It’s truly a lovely balance of flavors!
I have already made this recipe twice since my first attempt at these cookies (about 2 weeks ago), as my kids are absolutely in love with them. Well, mostly Sophia (3 years old) is absolutely in love… Charlotte (16 months old) is a bit pickier and hasn’t really developed a taste for chocolate and ginger yet! 🙂 I’m working on her. 😉
This recipe was invented by me one day when I wanted to make some cookies. I had this gingerbread cookie mix in the pantry, but didn’t want to follow the traditional recipe. I decided to improvise and try to incorporate a chocolate-y flavor to the mix. This recipe is so simple and straightforward… and so full of flavor I’m sure you’ll love it!
Gingerbread Hazelnut Cookies
- 1/2 cup gingerbread cookie mix
- 1 tbsp. hazelnut spread
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cookie mix, hazelnut spread and oil. Combine well. The texture will be very crumbly- that’s normal.
Using a teaspoon, scoop out small spoonfuls of this mix onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for ~12 minutes. Let the cookies cool on a cookie rack for at least 10 minutes.
Once cool, spread the tops of the cookies with a bit more of the hazelnut spread. Top with sprinkles!
