2 Ingredient Christmas Cookies

2 Ingredient Christmas Cookies

Simple Christmas cookies are my favorite- & can you seriously get any easier than 2 ingredients? Well, technically- three but the third one is optional. ;)

I'll get right to it so that you can get to baking. First up the ingredients: 2 pastry puff sheets + Nutella. You'll also want to find you cute holiday cookie cutters & get to baking! Be sure to tag me on Instagram (krystlemarienickels) if you make these- I'd love to see all of your beautiful holiday cookies!


  • Nutella
  • 2 pastry puff sheets
  • a little flour
  • powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Allow the pastry puff to come to room temperature & then lightly roll it out both sheets with a little flour & a rolling pin. Set one sheet to the side.
  2. Spread the Nutella over one of the sheets with an even layer.
  3. Add the other pastry sheet to the top.
  4. Time to use those cookie cutters.
  5. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper & bake at 400 degrees for 9-13 minutes, depending upon how large your cookies are.
  6. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before dusting with powdered sugar.

Tips I learned while making these:

  • About halfway through, I used a fork to press the cookies down lightly. They will puff up & look a bit odd but when they cool down, they will go back down.
  • You can use egg whites to lightly wash the top of the cookies if you'd like a slightly more brown look to your cookies.
  • Press your cookie cutter down firmly & wiggle it carefully so that your cookie cuts perfectly.
