Bake with 4 ingredients: Nutella cookies

Due to getting infected severely by baking bugs, and as well as getting influenced badly by peers, I decided to take the challenge of  Bake Along, which is hosted by Frozen Wings, Kitchen Flavours and Baking for Happy Kids. Since I am still a baby in baking, my baking age is only a few months old, the theme of 14 May "Bake with 4 ingredients" makes me thrilled.
I found the recipe through Google, and so far I have tried this recipe twice.
 My 4 ingredients are 1 cup Nutella, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup flour  and 1 egg.
My first attempt of Nutella cookies. It was over baked, so it was too hard to bite. You could also see that the sugar wasn't melted properly and it made the surface of the cookies coarse.  However, it tasted nice, so I mustn't give up trying.
In my second attempt, I got my 2 little helpers involve in the baking. 
When one sifted the flour, the other one whisked egg with sugar. This time, I made sure the sugar was melted properly.
Then, I added in Nutella and formed a dough.
Roll the dough on aluminium foil.
Cut the dough with cookies cutters, and bake the cookies in my halogen oven at 150C for 8 minutes only.
My second batch of the Nutella cookies were definitely looked better with pretty smooth surface. It was also not as hard as the first batch.
My 8 years old, April requested me to bake for her to bring to school at the year end term holiday tea party. I am just worrying that her classmates may need to pay a visit to the dentist after biting too many Nutella cookies, and I shall be blamed by their parents then. lol!
I believe, I still can make it better by making the Nutella cookies thinner and more crunchy.
I am so excited to see what other bloggers' recipe on Bake-Along No. 24 - Bake with 4 Ingredients.

    1. Mummy Gwen, don't bake for too long, it will over bake the biscuit. Instead, bake 5 minutes at one side then another 3 minutes flip over to the other side.
