Soft, gooey and delicious Kinder Bueno cookies, stuffed with Kinder chocolate, and topped with Kinder Bueno! 

Let’s begin this recipe post by saying, I LOVE THESE COOKIES. I love all cookies, they’re one of my favourite types of bakes ever, but oh holy gee these are a whole new kettle of fish. I am completely obsessed.  I have been posting and loving cookies since the beginning of my blogging career, but this year has definitely seen an increase in the cookie love.

My NYC chocolate chip cookies are the best thing I have posted this year, and I believe my most highly rated recipe ever as well! Along with those, my Kinder Bueno cookie bars have been insanely popular for so long, and so many of you bake these every single day. It blows my mind slightly, but honestly every single day I will be tagged in a post on Instagram, or Facebook or sent an email… and you guys adore them!

Kinder Bueno cookies

Because of the love of both of these cookie related recipes, I wanted to create a combined epic cookie that I know all the Kinder lovers will adore. Say hello to this recipe… Kinder Bueno cookies. Oh. My. YUM. 

So I started this recipe by comparing the two recipes above, and they are very very similar as it is already, so making a combined Kinder Bueno cookie version is quite easy! All of my cookie recipes have very major similarities because I don’t like to mess with something I love – and why would you?!

So these cookies are the same base recipe as the NYC chocolate chip cookies but replacing the milk and dark chocolate chips with the Kinder chocolate. The Kinder chocolate I am referring to here is NOT Kinder Bueno! You want the smaller chocolate bars, with the white filling (see the photos for reference!).


I use the Kinder chocolate in the cookie, as it gives the cookie the flavour and also the gooeyness. You can use 150g Kinder chocolate, and 150g chocolate chips/chunks – or all Kinder like I have! I love my cookies really chocolatey so I used 300g total. 

You can add in more if you want, or less (because some people contrary to popular belief don’t like their cookies too chocolatey) – but that’s up to you! Feel free to adapt it however you want.  The reason I didn’t use Kinder Bueno inside the cookie is that it’s quite bulky. This doesn’t matter in the Kinder Bueno cookie bars, but I preferred it without for the cookies! You can, of course, add in some Kinder Bueno pieces if you want, however! I would use 150g kinder chocolate, and 100g Kinder Bueno!

Portion, freeze and bake

Instead, you portion the cookie dough, freeze for 30 minutes (or fridge for 60 minutes), and then bake. Once taken out of the oven, add on the Kinder Bueno. This keeps the wafer crispy, makes a great decoration – and it’s the ideal solution! 

The good thing about this cookie dough is that it can freeze raw for up to 3 months – which means, make a big batch, and freeze, and have fresh warm cookies on demand. The only difference is that they can take a couple of minutes longer to bake… but that’s it. 

Dry ingredients

If you want to swap the sugars, I recommend using all granulated sugar if you don’t have light brown, or all light brown if you don’t have granulated. I tend to avoid caster sugar in my cookies these days. Dark brown sugar can be used too, but that makes the cookie dough darker and more caramel-like (no bad thing!) 

I use plain flour with baking powder for these, but if you want to use self raising you can – swap the flours, leave out the baking powder, but still use the bicarbonate of soda. Bicarbonate and baking powder are different things and they are interchangeable. They react to different ingredients and work differently, which is why the two are in the recipe – so make sure you use both. 

Stuffed cookies

Finally… LOOK AT THESE STUFFED COOKIES BELOW! So, a lot of you have heard of Kinderella spread, or white chocolate hazelnut spread as it’s sometimes known… and it’s incredible. It’s like the middle of a Kinder Bueno. You can get it from places such as Black Milk Cereal, Morrisons, or other places – and oh my days. 

Freeze heaped teaspoons of the spread (like in my Nutella stuffed cookies) for at least an hour or so and wrap your cookie dough around the spread. Then, chill the stuffed cookie balls for the 30-6o minutes. Bake like the recipe states, and you will have a gooey epic centre that makes it, even more, Kinder Bueno themed!! ENJOY!

Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings: 12 Cookies
Author: Jane's Patisserie


  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g light brown sugar
  • 75 g white granulated sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 1 + 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 300 g Kinder chocolate (chopped)
  • 3 Kinder Bueno (each bar halved to make 12)


  • Add the butter and sugars to a bowl and beat until creamy
  • Add in the egg, and beat again. If using vanilla, add it in now
  • Add in the plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and salt and beat until a cookie dough is formed
  • Add in the kinder chocolate and beat until it is distributed well
  • Weigh the cookies out into twelve cookie dough balls - they are about 80g each
  • Once they are rolled into balls, put the cookie dough in the freezer for at least 30 minutes, or in the fridge for an hour or so
  • Whilst the cookie dough is chilling, preheat your oven to 180C Fan, or 200C regular! If your oven runs hot, go for 160C-170c.
  • Take the cookies out of the freezer/fridge and put onto two lined baking trays. I put four cookies per tray
  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • Once baked, carefully push the kinder bueno into the top of the cookies and leave the cookies to cool on the tray for at least 30 minutes, as they will continue to bake whilst cooling
  • The kinder bueno chocolate can melt slightly, so these will be soft until the cookies have cooled fully.
  • ENJOY!


  • These will last for 4-5+ days once baked!
  • The Kinder Bueno on top is optional, but delicious! 
  • You can freeze the raw cookie dough for 3 months, and bake from frozen if you don't want to bake the entire batch! If you are baking from frozen, bake for 12-14 minutes.
  • You can use chocolate chips/chunks in place of the kinder chocolate. 
  • If you want a lovely texture - you can add in 1 level tbsp of cornflour, and take out 25g of the flour!
  • If you can't access one of the sugars, use all of the other one - i.e. all granulated, or all light brown sugar. Using other sugars can change the texture. 
  • You can make the cookies 120g each, and bake for 12-14 minutes, or smaller at 60g each and bake for 9 minutes. 
  • If you want to stuff the cookies
    • Freeze heaped teaspoons of spread. 
    • Wrap the cookie dough around the frozen spread, and chill the cookies like normal.
    • Bake the cookies like the recipe!

    Oh no what happens when you do t read the notes and just add the cornflour anyway without taking out 25g of flour! Unsure whether to just remake the batch!

    • Kay on June 13, 2024 at 12:40 pm

      Made a booboo and used caster sugar instead of granulated 👀
      Have i ruined them?

  2. Kerry Hubbard on September 26, 2023 at 7:49 am

    Hey Jane, if we are stuffing the cookies with the spread, do we still include the same amount of chocolate? Thank you

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 26, 2023 at 8:36 am

      Yes, you do!

    • nicola on April 3, 2024 at 10:34 am

      Can’t wait to try! Would these last a few days if. wrapped in cellophane?

  3. Leah on September 10, 2023 at 11:05 am

    hi, if i want to double the recipe do i need to use 2 eggs?

  4. Haleema on July 13, 2023 at 1:08 pm

    Love this recipe wanted to ask if I can use salted butter instead of unsalted ?

    Thank you xxx

    Love these! My kids go crazy for them. I’ve also swapped out the kinder and used snickers was sooo good! Just wish I could work out the calories for them so mumma could enjoy them too!

  7. Ayla on February 2, 2023 at 4:27 pm

    Do these keep for 4-5+days in an air tight container or how would I store them to keep them as fresh as possible? These are the best cookies and my friends and family always ask me to make these for events! 🙂

  8. Amber on November 20, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Hi I have made these cookies multiple times and all the time I’ve baked them I have been melting the butter🤦🏼‍♀️I never realised it didn’t say melt the butter is it ok that I have been melting the butter instead ?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 28, 2022 at 3:46 pm

      Hiya! If they have been turning out okay then sure! Hope this helps! x

  9. Anna on November 12, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    My cookies never went flat and just baked in the balls I made them into. Why might this have happened?

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 16, 2022 at 9:33 am

      Hiya! This can be due to your oven being too hot, overworking the dough, or rolling the balls too tightly. Hope this helps! x

    Seriously my favorite cookie. So different and flavorful. I made these one week and then made them again like two weeks later because I was craving them so much! I will say they don’t spread quite as much for me as in the picture, but I am trying to perfect each time. Honestly they taste so amazing I really don’t bother with what they look like.

  11. Nicola on August 21, 2022 at 10:58 am

    Hiya, I made these yesterday and refrigerated my cookies prior to baking. However I only baked some of them and meant to put the rest in the freezer however I forgot and they are still in the fridge, it’s been about 20hours.

    Is it safe for me to freeze them now?


    • Jane's Patisserie on August 22, 2022 at 4:12 pm

      Hiya! Yes they should be fine – raw cookie dough lasts for around 24 hours! Hope this helps! x

  12. Darren flynn on August 7, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    Made these & they are so good, just one thing, the kinder Bueno did not stick to the top of the cookie, just wondering should it or is it just for decorative purposes?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2022 at 12:06 pm

      Hiya! I always stick mine whilst they’re warm so they slightly melt to the top – but they are just for decoration! Hope this helps! x

  13. Olivia on July 20, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Hi Jane,
    I’m asking on behalf of a friend who tried making these, she used an electric whisk to beat into a dough and it didn’t form as a dough it just seemed to make crumbs. Any other recommendations on how to form the dough or what to use to beat the ingredients instead?

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 26, 2022 at 2:42 pm

      Hiya! A beater should be used for this recipe – but if you knead it a little with your hands it will come together! Hope this helps! x

    • Heidi on May 19, 2023 at 4:26 pm

      Hi Olivia,

      I just use my hands or the back of a spoon and it works perfectly!

    Could I make these smaller than 60g as in mini cookies please?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 11, 2022 at 12:47 pm

      Yes of course! Just keep an eye on the baking time! Enjoy x

  15. Nora on December 22, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    Hello Jane
    I’m making the 60 grams cookies of this recipe.
    I put the dough in the fridge cause I wanna bake it tomorrow, how much time should I let it bake? 9 minutes? Or should I add more time ??
    Thanks 😊

    • Dave on January 7, 2023 at 5:26 pm

      Hello Jane, I have yet to try this recipe (it looks so good) but I wanted to bring them to a gathering. I was wondering is this recipe able to be doubled with no effect to the quality of the cookie? Thanks!

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 10, 2023 at 2:44 pm

      Hiya! Yes absolutely, enjoy! x

  16. Alaia Debrah on October 5, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    I was wondering can I use the sad recipe for a 7×7 tin

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 6, 2021 at 9:31 am

      No, please see my kinder bueno cookie bars recipe for a traybake version.

  17. Abdul on August 21, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Hello Jane, do we have to mix the butter and sugar till it’s creamy or is it enough to mix it till it’s combine?
    Also, should the butter be room temperature or straight from the fridge?

  18. CM on August 3, 2021 at 4:40 am

    hello, I dont have enough kinder chocolate, so what flavour of chocolate chips would you recommend I add along with the kinder chocolate? thank you

    Hi Jane,

    I’ve made your cookies for a while now and LOVE them but they never seem to spread out and flatten like yours seem to do in the photos. When I take them out the oven and let them cool they stay more puffed up and look more biscuit-like? I was wondering whether you were able to help why this might be? Thank you 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 28, 2021 at 1:40 pm

      Your oven may be too hot, or you are rolling the cookie dough too tight! x

    • Aisha on October 7, 2021 at 2:43 pm

      I made these cookies mine were a bit cakey, probably bake them too long?

    Hello Jane!
    I have made these cookies 4 times now I think and they are just to die for! To make along side the original kinder cookies, I was just wondering what you would do to Adapt the recipe to a chocolate dough to make chocolate kinder cookies? Than you so much and have a lively say 💞x x

    • Rosie on June 26, 2021 at 1:51 pm

      Lovely day* 🤣

      I would follow the cookie dough recipe for my triple chocolate NYC Cookies x

  21. Neha Mahamood on June 14, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    Hey Jane, been meaning to try these gorgeous looking cookies! Just one question though, I can’t have egg so as a replacement do you think a flax egg would work? Have you tried it with a flax egg? What would you recommend as a substitute for egg?

  22. Neha Mahamood on June 14, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    Made these and love them but can you freeze them after you have cooked them and then defrost and reheat or would they go soggy?

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 26, 2021 at 2:28 pm

      Hey, the only issue would be the buenos stuck on top but otherwise they would be fine to freeze and just reheat from frozen xx

  27. Amber on April 15, 2021 at 2:26 pm

    Hi Jane! I just made these and I’m very excited to try them, but the chocolate melted on the bottom of the cookies and burned after a minute or 6 in the oven. Do you know how to prevent this from happening or what I could be doing wrong? I put the temperature at 170°C and the cookies look perfect otherwise. Thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 17, 2021 at 2:11 pm

      Hey! it sounds like your oven was too hot, did you line the tray, pre-heat the tray and use the correct type of tray? As any of these factors could have caused it xx

  28. Lorna on April 7, 2021 at 4:44 pm

    Hi Jane,

    I was wondering with your cookies do you add the cornflour or do you make them without?x

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 9, 2021 at 11:52 am

    What gas mark should these be baked?

    Hi Jane,

    If I wanted to add white chocolate spread to these, but freeze them over night then cook the next day. Would I add the spread before & it would be fine in the freezer? Or the next day

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 27, 2021 at 11:12 am

      Hello! You would have to freeze the spread first before you add inside the cookie dough and then yes you can freeze the cookies to then bake x

  34. Gemma on March 23, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Hi Jane, I love this recipe my favourite cookies of yours so far I would like to try the stuffed version with the white hazelnut spread. My question is if I stuff the cookies with the spread can I still freeze them raw for 3 months?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 27, 2021 at 11:14 am

      Hello! Yeah you can!x

  35. Becky Thompson on March 21, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    How many medium eggs do we need to use instead of the large egg? I only have medium.

  36. Becky Thompson on March 19, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    Do we need to freeze the chocolate that goes into the cookie dough?

  37. Steph on March 6, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    These look amazing ! I was wondering what the purpose of both the bicarb of soda and baking powder is? Normally I see recipies call for one or the other, but never both. So i
    I’m really interested in the science behind using both.

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 15, 2021 at 12:26 pm

      Hello! Both raising agents react to different ingredients. All of my cookie recipes use bicarb, whereas I use baking powder because of using plain flour. If I was using self raising flour, I wouldn’t use the baking powder. I hope that makes sense!x

    I love all your recipes. How comes you don’t melt the butter? Iv tried this recipe but it didn’t spread much i pressed it down. Would you recommend melting the butter

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 27, 2021 at 8:59 am

      I don’t for cookies, but do for cookie bars. Not spreading much can be too hot an oven, or rolling too tightly before baking!

  40. Vicky on February 25, 2021 at 6:53 pm

    Could this recipe be used to make individual deep dish cookies (9cm silicone mould) and if so would the cooking times need to change?

  41. Lara Vella on February 25, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    Hi !

    Once you bake them are they meant to still be a bit soft ?

    Thanks !

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 26, 2021 at 9:45 am

      Yes – and then as they cool they will continue to bake.

  42. Charlene on February 24, 2021 at 12:10 pm


    Could I leave the cookie dough in the fridge overnight and cook the next day and if so would I need to cover it?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 24, 2021 at 12:38 pm

      Yes you can – I would form the individual cookies though to make it easier – and then just put them in a container or cover with clingfilm!

  43. Ellie on February 16, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Hey, would this recipe work with white chocolate liner bueno on top?

    • Jane's Patisserie on February 16, 2021 at 7:59 pm

      Yes! As it just goes on top after baking you can use whichever you fancy!!

    Absolutely loved making these, and they taste so good! And thoroughly enjoyed by everyone I give them too.
    Could I sub the kinder for mini eggs? Same weight would it be? Or best to use your mini egg cookie bar recipe?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 19, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    These are seriously delicious!! I use this as my base cookie dough recipe now. I often make kinder and white chocolate together. I’ve also make Cadbury chocolate ones using this base cookie recipe and Mars bar and galaxy caramel ones to use up some of the Christmas chocolate. Eating left over chocolate in a cookie is so much better. I also love making a big batch and freezing them so I can have them fresh whenever I fancy them. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!

  53. Jordan on January 16, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Hi Jane, I have made your kinder cookies plenty of times. They are amazing! I do have one question though. Would the end result be the same if I made them with gluten free flour?

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 17, 2021 at 10:30 am

      They may have a slightly different texture, but otherwise they would work well!

  54. Hannah on January 13, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Hi Jane,

    I wanted to make around 8 of these and freeze the rest of the batch. How should I go about freezing? Do I still add the chocolate in before putting the dough in the freezer? Your notes mentioned spread so I got a bit confused as the recipe doesn’t! Thank you x

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 13, 2021 at 12:14 pm

      You just freeze the cookie dough balls before baking – as you have to chill the cookie dough anyway, you freeze at that point. And yes, as mentioned on the post that is an option to customise the cookie.

  55. Sue on January 12, 2021 at 9:31 am

    Hi Jane, i couldn’t wait to try the recipe and finally yesterday, I had the chance to bake them. Mine turned out to be kinda salty in some bites, which was disappointing, because those sounded so marvellous. I just used 1/2 tsp of sea salt,though. Should I refine the salt before putting it in the dough?

    Will definitely try those again! Great idea with the kinder schokolade!! Thanks from Germany. 💜

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 13, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      How did you mix the dough? It might not have been mixed in well enough, but sea salt is usually chunky if its the same as ours!

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 10, 2021 at 2:06 pm

      That’s a little odd.. unless they are over baked and the chocolate has burnt for example I haven’t seen that before. Remember when the cookies are cooled it will solidify again though.

    I made these cookies and unfortunately they didn’t spread like yours idk where l went wrong!?!

    • Jane's Patisserie on December 26, 2020 at 9:51 pm

      This can happen when the cookie dough balls are rolled too tightly, or the cookie dough is over beaten! Just flatten them slightly before baking next time x

    Honestly the most incredible cookies I’ve ever made! Every person that I have made these for has asked for the link to the recipe!
    Morrison’s have stopped selling the white chocolate hazelnut spread but I find that Tesco white chocolate spread is another lovely filling for these cookies. I always make sure I have a batch in the freezer!

    was delicious made my friends 18th i felt that the cookie tasted a little bit sweet and salty next time would use only stork and not normal un salted butter . really easy and yummy.

  68. Shannon on November 26, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    Hi Jane!

    Would this work if each cookie was 40g and half the cooking time? I’m making them for little ones and think the 80g might be a bit too much for them

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 26, 2020 at 3:59 pm

      Yeah they should work absolutely fine, the baking time will be quite a bit less (you don’t want to over bake as they continue to bake whilst cooling) x

  69. Roosje on November 25, 2020 at 4:19 pm

    Hi jane,

  70. M on November 14, 2020 at 4:34 pm

    Hey! Love this recipe💕just wondered – the serving says 12 cookies, but the recipe says “2 lined trays of 4” which makes 8. Does it make 8 or 12 cookies? Many thanks x

    • Jane's Patisserie on November 15, 2020 at 8:39 am

      Sorry, that’s just because I used two trays but only put four on a tray at a time. It does make 12 x

  71. claire Mahey on October 20, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    Hi what spread do you put in the middle it looks so good but not sure what it is as its a pale creamy brown colour in the pic 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 21, 2020 at 11:31 am

      It’s mentioned on the post – white chocolate hazelnut from morissons, or black milk cereal hazelnut spread!

  72. Abi on October 19, 2020 at 12:29 am

    Hi Jane, the first time I made these they were perfect, they didn’t flatten too much and the dough was fine. Second time round the dough was greasy. The only thing I did different was use stork, instead of block butter, that was room temp. I froze them overnight and baked straight from frozen, however the cookies were flatter and somehow split open from the bottom, why did that happen?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 19, 2020 at 4:35 pm

      Stork should be used straight from the fridge (because of what it’s made from) so that will probably be why the are oily and baked a little odd! It’s worth using fridge cold stork and you should be fine! x

  73. Wilma on October 17, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Omgosh these are DELICIOUS. Next roma I will add more Kinder chocolate.. never enough Kinder chocolate right. Greetings from the Netherlands!

    Love this recipe!! If I was to adjust the ingredients to make 16 cookies, what would you do about the egg? Would you still add one large egg or change it to two?

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 15, 2020 at 10:07 am

      It depends on the size that you want the cookies – you could make a double batch and make the cookies slightly bigger, or yes increase the egg size and then add a splash of milk if it needs it! X

    My fave recipe by you so far! Have made the 60g and 80g version. Just wanted to ask, if I wanted to make them mini sized (say the size of a Maryland cookie), I’m guessing I should portion them to about 30g each, does this sound right? Also, should I lessen the heat as well as the time? I would think the same temperature but perhaps for 5-6 mins?

    Thanks a bunch xxx

    • Jane's Patisserie on October 1, 2020 at 7:15 pm

      I haven’t tried these that small, and the chocolate would have to be chopped quite finely so there is enough distribution, but yeah I reckon so!!

  77. Scott on September 21, 2020 at 8:54 am

    Hi Jane, can I ask ur you use cold butter or room temperature?

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 22, 2020 at 9:13 am

      It depends on the butter you are using – if you are using a spread you can use it straight away, block butter might need to be at room temp (Especially if you don’t have a stand mixer)!

  78. Asha on September 18, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    This recipe is really frustrating me! If I wanted stuffed cookies and flatten them slightly in the freezer how am I suppose to wrap the spread up if the cookie dough is frozen?? Can you explain why you have to freeze them please

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 18, 2020 at 8:41 pm

      As per the post you freeze the spread, then wrap the cookie dough around it and then chill the cookies before baking. You have just got the order the wrong way around x

      They can spread more and have a different texture if you don’t (which is why the resting is there) x

    Hi! We made the cookies, followed the recipe perfectly, but for some reason the dough balls didn’t flatten into cookies? 😂 Do you know where we have gone wrong and how we can improve next time? They’re still delicious regardless of shape!

    • Jane's Patisserie on September 5, 2020 at 7:58 pm

      This usually means you have over beaten the cookie dough, or rolled the balls of dough too tightly. Try and reduce both somewhat and see if that helps, or just press it down before baking next time! X

  83. Geraldine on September 5, 2020 at 12:00 am

    Hi Jane, had a great recipe for choc chip cookies including Nutella – never failed to impress….But your recipe is a game changer!! Loved them -will have to get the granulated sugar, have always used caster so cant wait to see if i can notice a difference!!! Ger

  85. Alex on August 28, 2020 at 5:43 pm

    I loved this recipe! It was so easy to follow. But your cookies look quite chunky whereas mine were slightly flat. I froze the cookies for 1hr but I think I didn’t have enough kinder, could this have been the reason for flat cookies?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 27, 2020 at 3:59 pm

      It could be, but it can also be a few different things – as long as you used the correct ingredients (such as not swapping a sugar out for caster sugar etc) it can be down to the oven temp too x

    • Sam on August 28, 2020 at 5:41 pm

      Would you recommend baking at a lower temperature for longer then?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 28, 2020 at 7:25 pm

      Okay so as mentioned then it could be the oven. Generally if they are flat, you should probably use a higher temp to shock them into staying the size. Also, don’t flatten them before baking.

    • Sam on August 30, 2020 at 2:45 pm

      5 stars
      Yeah I never flattened them the first time. But second time round, I used a higher temp and they kept their shape thanks!

    Hi! These are incredible and have gone down a real treat in my office when I’ve brought some in 🙂
    Can I ask, if freezing the dough would you free it in balls or as a log shape to slice when wanting to bake?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 18, 2020 at 9:20 am

      I freeze as the balls! And I’m so glad they were a hit!

  88. Julie on August 18, 2020 at 4:54 am

    Can I use this recipe but make half of the cookies kinder and half of them stuffed with Nutella as it saves me from following 2 different recipes?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 18, 2020 at 9:20 am


    • Julie on August 22, 2020 at 1:55 am

      In that case, do I refrigerate the plain cookie dough for 1hr and then add the frozen Nutella in the centre?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 22, 2020 at 9:36 am

      Freeze the nutella, add it to the cookie dough, and then chill the cookie.

  89. Lauren on August 12, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    Hi, Could I make these tonight and freeze overnight and then bake in the morning? Just need them for just after lunch tomorrow and want them to be as fresh as poss. I know the bueno can go a bit soft if made too far in advance thats all. Thanks x

  90. Cristina on August 11, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Hi! Can I use a whisk?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2020 at 1:34 pm

      I personally wouldn’t use a whisk as it’s a really thick cookie dough mix that will just get caught.

  91. Carina on August 11, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    Hi Jane, I have made your NYC Cookies so many times and they’re amazing so thought I would give these a go. I have doubled the quantity as needing to make a lot however the dough seems crumbly. I have used 2 medium eggs. I know the recipe says 2 medium/large eggs for 24 cookies however should I use 3 medium eggs instead to help? In baking before, I know you have to start adding extra eggs if going over 2/3 using medium rather than large?
    Hope you can help
    Thanks 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2020 at 1:35 pm

      The dough is the same as the NYC cookies, which I’ve made a double batch of before, and only needed the two. It depends though as your ‘medium’ could’ve been on the smaller side! You can add a splash of milk to just bring it together xx

    I made these using all white sugar and they were perfect. Then I made them again using brown sugar and white sugar and the mixture was very sticky, even after adding a bit more flour. Is this normal? The end result was fine, it was just the mixture that was really sticky.

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 12, 2020 at 1:36 pm

      It might purely be the weather if you didn’t change anything else as the type of sugar wouldn’t cause that xx

  93. Cristina on August 11, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    Hi! Do you recommend to use a stand mixer or can i do it by hand?
    And if it is with the stand mixer, i use the whisk attachment?

    Btw, it looks sooo great!

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 11, 2020 at 7:21 pm

      If using a stand mixer, use the beater attachment! xx

    Hi Jane ! How long will the dough keep in the fridge? I’m waiting for my Kinderella to arrive but want to make some without today! X

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 9, 2020 at 5:22 pm

      I would say maximum 48 hours in the fridge xx

  95. Sophie on August 9, 2020 at 11:32 am

    Hi Jane, probably a silly question! I can see you roll the dough into small balls before chilling… would you then squash them a little when placing them on the tray, or will they naturally flatten during baking?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 9, 2020 at 12:23 pm

      You just lightly roll them into the dough ball, and then bake – you can flatten them yourself if you want, but I don’t x

  96. Corrie on August 6, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    Is there any advantage of using plain flour and baking powder over self raising flour, or does it have exactly the same effect?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 6, 2020 at 9:33 pm

      It’s not the exact same results no. Ideally the plain flour is used!

  97. Claudia on August 5, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    Can you reheat the cookies once cooled so the chocolate goes gooey?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 5, 2020 at 9:25 pm

      Yes! You can easily re-heat one cookie in the microwave if you have one, or about 2-3 minutes in the oven!

  98. Kat on August 5, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Thank you for the recipe! This is such a daft question but would I be able to freeze mixture but the stuffed version, and if so would it have the same cooking time?

    Thank you so much! X

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 5, 2020 at 2:47 pm

      Yes – so freezing the raw dough for a long time will be fine, even with the stuffed centre – the baking time is a couple minutes more to counteract it, but stuffed cookies are best served warm anyway!

  99. Lisa on August 4, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Hi Jane for the stuffed version do we still freeze the whole cookie before baking and do we follow this recipe or the Nutella one thankyou

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 5, 2020 at 10:10 am

      Hey, as mentioned on the post you freeze the spread, and then wrap the cookie around it and follow the steps – the only difference is needing to put the frozen spread in the middle of the cookie dough x

      You can leave it out, but the texture will be different.. if you have self raising flour, use that instead of plain to make up for it!

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 26, 2020 at 8:28 am

      As mentioned in the post it’s due to the end resulting texture and overall bake – in nearly all of my cookies/cookie bars these days I use granulated!

    • Jane's Patisserie on July 25, 2020 at 8:48 pm

      There’s a few places that sell the spread, but it’s definitely not essential which is why the main recipe is listed without it! And it’s to get the right texture/spread of the dough, as it’s the same base recipe as my NYC Cookies.

    Thank you for all of your amazing recipes!!

      Before you chill the dough – it makes it easier! x
