5-Ingredient Chocolate Cookies

These super-easy, fast-baking cookies come together in less than 15 minutes.  

Culinary tips:

  • Keep mixer on low.  Over-mixing these cookies will make them chewy.

  • Using a cold egg is okay in this recipe, because the stand mixer will quickly bring it to room temperature!

  • No leavening agent required.  The chocolate hazelnut spread and flour combined with one egg come together in the oven in 10 minutes.
