Nutella Creme Pies

Here’s a chocolately spin on the classic Oatmeal Creme Pies. I personally love creme pies and feel that the only way you can make the classic even better is to mix in a hefty dose of Nutella! I am a fan of anything that has Nutella in it, so when I saw these delicious cookies I ran into my kitchen and got started. Two chewy Nutella chocolate chip cookies with a luscious Nutella creme filling layered in between. Did you get all that deliciousness? Here’s to your double dose of Nutella! Might as well double the batch- they won’t last long! 😉

For the Cookies:

  • 1 ½  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened but still cool
  • 1/4 light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 ½ cups mini chocolate chips

For the Nutella Creme Filling:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup marshmallow spread
  • 1/2 cup Nutella


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Beat in the Nutella until combined. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed, scraping the side of the bowl occasionally, until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  4. Roll a heaping tablespoon of dough into a 1½-inch ball between your palms and then place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart (you should be able to fit 12 cookies on each sheet). Butter the bottom of a drinking glass and flatten the dough balls with the bottom of the glass until they are about ¾ inch thick. Sprinkle with sugar.
  5. Bake until the cookies centers are just set, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack and cool the cookies on the baking sheets about 3 minutes; using a wide metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool to room temperature.
  6. To make the creme filling: in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together. Stir in the vanilla and pinch of salt. Mix in the marshmallow spread and Nutella, and beat until light and fluffy. If the filling is too soft or runny, add more sugar as needed.
  7. To assemble, Spread a heaping tablespoon of filling on the flat side of 1 cookie. Top with second cookie, forming a sandwich. Repeat with remaining filling and cookies.

Yields: 12 sandwich cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 10 minutes

  14. These sound delicious! PINNED.

  15. Oh man, I need these in my life now! Amazing!

  16. I was with you until I saw the marshmallow spread, Christina. This bears thinking about though — maybe Nutella and cream cheese…

    • Christina says:

      Oh, but the marshmallow filling is so heavenly! 🙂

      • I kind of like to eat real food, Christina. I’m not about to make homemade marshmallow cream (I’m not that big of a marshmallow fan anyway, except when they are burned to cinders in a campfire and the center liquifies — I’m the type that catches them on fire deliberately, blows them out and does it again.

  18. gwynnem says:

  20. Sharon K says:

    Holy cow!! I made these yesterday . . . absolutely out of this world!! Thanks for the fabulous recipe!!!!

  21. Oh I so want one of these!

  22. Yum!!! I might be with Kale chronicles and pass on the marshmallow and go more toward nutella ganache. But maybe we are just being stubborn and rigid. Sometimes you just have to try something new:-)

  23. iamahoneybee says:

    nutella is my go to food when i am buzzed. I should make some of these ahead of time to enjoy instead of just eating it out of the jar with a spoon. This would be 100X better!!

  24. Wow, I am on such a chocolate high just reading about these cookies. As a Nutella lover I must try these. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  25. Heather says:

    When I flatten the dough it sticks to my cup. I added extra flour but it didn’t seem to help. Had to put flour on my cup.

    • Christina says:

      Next time you make them, butter the bottom of the drinking glass after every 2 or 3 cookies. That should keep the dough from sticking to the bottom of the cup. 🙂
