Have you ever made a cookie and thought, “DAYYYYUM! I’m goooood!”? All the time, right?! ME, TOO!! icon wink Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookies

I’m not that much into cookies, I’d rather have cake (or eat the chocolate chips straight from the yellow bag), but when the Holidays roll around, it’s the first thing that I want to make. As of late, one of my most favorite cookies are these Hazelnut Shortbread Cookies – soft, flavorful, nutty and sweet. And covered with Nutella! 

Then we have these Chocolate Creamy Cookies that I made recently. They are so, so good. The tastiest chocolate cookie, ever.

But, I needed something new, soooo, this one time, in my kitchen, I made some cookies with Nutella. I then added white chocolate chips and cranberries… need I say more? The cookies were beeeeyond! Creamy, chewy, Nutell-y. Aaaaa.mazing. Worthy of sharing.

When I saw some talk about the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap hosted by Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil, I knew my Nutella Cookies and I just HAD to be a part of it. After all, we’re talking about cookies and bloggers making more cookies for other bloggers! What a delicious idea, right?! You would definitely think so if you had a chance to taste the awesome Cherry Chocolate Cookies I got to try made by Ashley from Center Cut Cook. They really were incredible. Soft as pillows, sweet and very chocolaty, just the way I like them!

Let me tell you, I felt like the luckiest girl each time I received a cookie package. I could not WAIT to open the package and inhale ‘em all! Can you blame me?!

As I was eating their cookies, all I could think about was if the bloggers were enjoying my cookies! Fingers crossed, I hope they did! Eeeeek! And I hope you will, too!!

    I’ve yet to taste Nutella but the rest of the ingredients suggest a wonderfully tasty cookie and a great addition to a Christmas dessert table.

    I am curious whether the chips and cranberries added to the finished cookies adhere well enough or do they fall off as you attempt to eat them.

    • Katerina Petrovska December 11, 2013 at 1:19 PM - Reply

      HI! *waving* :-)

      Very few fell off… as long as you add them while the cookies are still hot, and you press the chips and cranberries down a bit, they will stay.

    Do these freeze well? Either in dough form or already baked then frozen?

    • Katerina Petrovska December 11, 2013 at 1:15 PM - Reply

      Hi Emily!
      Yes, they freeze very well. Cool completely then place cookies in a single layer in airtight containers. Line the bottom of each container with waxed paper and repeat with waxed paper between each layer of cookies, ending with waxed paper on top. Hope this helps!!
