I love baking and I love nutella. So, when my boy asked me to bake cookies for him, I decided to try some eggless nutella swirl cookies. I found this chocolate swirl cookie recipe by betty crocker where she has used chocolate and cherries. I wanted to replace the eggs and decided to try out with nutella instead of chocolate. So, I started with a basic vanilla cookie recipe and just spread some nutella over it, then wrapped the dough with a cling foil and refrigerated it for sometime. The swirls are not so perfect but they are so delicious that I had to share this recipe with you all. Trust me that the whole lot will get over within minutes and be ready to bake them again for your family.
So, what are you waiting for? Get into the kitchen and start baking some Eggless Nutella Swirl Cookies and make sure you hide few cookies for yourself to enjoy 🙂
