Recipe: Nutella Filled Sugar Cookie Cups

Earlier this summer, I was looking for a recipe to take to a bake sale and cake walk.  I wanted something different that didn't require a lot of time.  As I was looking through some of my favorite blogs, I came across this recipe on The Sweet Spot and knew instantly that this was the recipe I was looking for.   I could have easily used a tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough to make this  really easy, but I decided to go the extra step and make Paige's sugar cookie recipe.  

Keeping my kids away from these was hard because they love anything Nutella so much that when one of them won the cake walk, out of all the wonderful goodies there, she chose these little delightful cups of goodness.
