A friend departed post recently, and she gifted me some leftover baking supplies. Rummaging through my kitchen cabinets trying to find some storage space (Remember all that pancake mix? It takes up a lot of space.), I stumbled upon two large jars of Nutella that I don’t even remember packing into our consumables.I vaguely remember tossing everything in sight into our cart at Costco, but Nutella isn’t something we usually eat. (Kail claims to hate it, but I don’t believe him.) Not trusting myself to have Nutella in the house and not eat it straight from the jar by the spoonful, I took to Pinterest to find some dessert recipes featuring Nutella.Three-ingredient cookie recipe.And I found the perfect cookie recipe requiring only three ingredients: Nutella, flour and an egg. I made a test batch one night after work to see whether they’d be good enough to bring to a dinner party as a dessert offering.Verdict: they are. At least, to a dinner party here on the compound in Kabul. With greater availability of ingredients in a normal place, I’d be slightly more creative. But in a pinch, these three-ingredient, easy Nutella cookies are perfect.Easy Nutella CookiesPrep Time: 5 minutesCook Time: 10 minutesYield: About 18 cookiesIngredients
