10 days of Cookies - Day 8 - Nutella Haystacks


We had one more Christmas dinner to attend on Thursday night.   A dinner with our extended family - two of our friends and their family.  We sometimes get together with them Christmas eve but one of our friends parents and sister were in Cuba until boxing day so they moved their dinner.  It worked out really good for us as we wouldn't have been able to attend Christmas eve due to family commitments   This dinner was nice as well as our friends cooked up some filet mignon with several tasty sides.   Sammie behaved herself and we had a great time.   One of these friends is our nutella loving friend,  so I always feel it is my food blogging duty to bring him some nutella based treats.    Of course being the unorganized person I am these days I was ill prepared and did little planning.   I then remembered one of my favorite cookies that my mom makes and put on a nutella spin!
