Nutella pinwheel cookies and brownies

My whole new version of nutella pinwheel cookie…it’s nutella brownie with hershey! I didn’t do this on purpose. To make long story short, the dough was too soft and I can’t roll it, so I spread nutella on top of the dough and baked it. Then I sprinkled hazelnuts and form a zigzag with a hershey syrup. Genius or I’m just really good in covering things up?? HA!

But seriously this is my real Nutella pinwheel looks like:

That’s messed up. I know! And I am not embarrassed at all. I know baking is not my expertise but at least I tried! And I will never stop trying. Maybe I will make something different next time, maybe something very simple to make. I was inspired to make this because the pinwheel cookies that Shaheen made looks very enticing. And I thought I can make a pinwheel that would also look like that. But I forgot I don’t know anything about baking. So sad. But hey, If I didn’t try this, how would I know and I wouldn’t discover Nutella brownie. So it’s 50-50 😀

Anyhow this is the recipe via purple foodie.

125g / 1 stick butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 heaped cup sifted flour
¼ cup Nutella to spread, a little more won’t hurt, but be careful not to overdo lest it ooze!
2-3 tablespoon, toasted, chopped hazelnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 175C/350F.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar together till creamy.
  3. Mix in the egg yolk and the vanilla essence. The mixture should be light and well combined.
  4. Stir in the flour and refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes so that it can firm up and facilitate easy rolling.
  5. Next, roll out the dough into a rectangle of ¼ inch thickness.
  6. Spread the Nutella making sure to leave one finger space on all four sides. Again, we don’t want the Nutella to ooze out!
  7. Sprinkle over the chopped hazelnuts and roll up the dough.
  8. Refrigerate for another ten minutes before cutting the slices.
  9. Lay the slices on a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes till slightly golden at the edges. Baking time will vary depending on how thick you’ve cut them. Colour is a good indication.
