And to celebrate I've made some little Nutella cookie tarts. I saw this idea over at Tulip's Kitchen ages ago, here is my version made with Nutella cream.

Nutella Cookie Tarts
Just a rough recipe, quantities depend on how many you want to make.

Chocolate chip cookie dough - I made half of this recipe, from Savory Sweet Life, but you can use your favourite recipe or buy the packaged cookie dough from the supermarket
1 small carton of double cream
A couple of tablespoons of Nutella
A drop of hazelnut liqueur, optional

You need a mini muffin tin for this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
Make the cookie dough and roll it into 1" balls, size depends upon your muffin tin. Put the dough balls into the tin and bake for about 10-12 minutes.
Take out of the oven and while still warm, indent the dough with a round implement - I used a small pestle from a pestle and mortar set - to make the tart shells. Leave to cool.
Whip the double cream and add the Nutella. You can add the hazelnut liqueur at this stage if using.
Pipe or spoon the cream into the cooled cookie dough tart shells and serve, or put in the fridge to serve later.

My gosh, my mouth is watering just looking at those little bites. I could definitely eat a few of those. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog right now called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your tarts up.

Strangely enough I'm not a great nutella fan even though I do like chocolate. That said the photos here are steadily convincing me that I need to give these a go... gosh they look divine!

Lisa said...

These look quite yummy! I love little cookie tarts and I haven't made them in sooo long. Thanks for the great idea.

Jacqueline Meldrum said...

What a fabulous idea! Love it!

Jacqueline Meldrum said...

Oh and the cookie dough I usually make cooks fro about 7 minutes, would you still advise 10? Is it to make them firmer? Maybe my recipe would be no good as it makes chewy cracked cookies.

Nic said...

Thank you everyone, so many lovely comments!

Jacqueline - I think if your cookies are cooked at 7 minutes, then that is probably all they might need. These cookies needed longer until they were cooked. They were not overly firm, but they didn't fall apart either. If you use one particular recipe that you like, you could try doing just a couple of these tarts next time you make your cookies to see if they cook how you want.
