For the longest time, we called it Nut-ella. Then one day I discovered it was pronounced Nu-tella. I felt so misled.
But it does not change my love for Nutella. When I was a kid I would eat it straight from the jar with a spoon.
Today I had some time in the afternoon so I decided I would bake some cookies.
I rummaged through my list of to-bake recipes (this list is a little like Mary Poppin's bag - there seems to be endless number of recipes in the stack) and found this recipe and it seemed like a really good idea to make some of these cookies!
Anyway, I am over the moon because as most of you (especially if you have liked my facebook page) already know, my blog has been selected as one of the finalist in the Best Cooking Blog category in this year's Singapore Blog awards.

Here's how to bake these cookies!
In a mixing bowl, I creamed together butter and brown sugar until the mixture turned light and fluffy.
Then I dished them onto the baking trays using an ice-cream scoop, and baked them!
