This simple cookie dough recipe can be made in 5 minutes and can be filled with both sweet and savoury ingredients. I chose to fill mine with Nutella and Prune Spread. Thanks mom for the recipe!!


2 1/2 cups self rising dough or unbleached flour with 1 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup sour cream

3/4 cup organic butter


Nutella Spread

Date Spread


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut a piece of parchment paper and place on a large cookie sheet. In a cuisinart add flour, sour cream and organic butter. Mix until the dough forms into a ball. Take out and split the dough in half. Form the dough into two balls and cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2- 3 hours or overnight. Take out one piece of the dough at a time from the fridge and let it sit on the counter until you can roll it out. Sprinkle some flour on the counter , so the dough doesn’t stick. Start rolling out the dough until it forms either a circle or rectangle shape. Both shapes work fine. Fill with your favourite filling. I chose Nutella and Date Spread. You can also choose any jams with raisins, prune spread with nuts, feta cheese with spinach or shredded cheddar cheese. Now roll the dough as tight as you can into a log shape. Place on baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 25 minutes or until  a light golden colour. Take out of oven and let it rest for 1 minute and then slice it into even 1/2″ inch wide. Transfer cookies onto cooling rack with the parchment paper so it doesn’t crumble. Let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
