People are going to show up to your house any minute and you don’t have a single thing to offer them to snack on. Ever been there? Cookies are usually my go to quick treat, but I didn’t have time to wait for my butter to come to room temperature (and I really hate softening butter in the microwave!). So I started looking around to see what I had around…and was really coming up empty handed.

Then I remembered I had pie dough in the fridge. Score! Maybe I could throw together some quick hand pies? But then I realized I had eaten the last of the fresh strawberries. Unless someone wanted an eggplant hand pie, I was out of luck. Then I thought of the holy grail — Nutella.

Nutella & Pie Crust = Heaven. I realized I only had one 9 inch pie crust — so hand pies were out. {P.S. I was totally depressed not to get to use my adorable little hand pie molds. So now I added hand pies and empanadas to my menu for next week — yay for multi-use tools!} Instead I whipped out my pizza wheel cutter and went to town cutting my pie crust into long triangles.

I slathered each triangle with a ton of Nutella, rolled it up, brushed it with some melted butter, sprinkled it with some coarse sugar, and into the oven they went!

I was so happy with how these turned out that I had to snap a couple of quick photos so I could share them with y’all. I had these cooling on a cookie rack in just under 20 minutes — can’t beat that! Plus, they went absolutely perfect with a glass of cold milk. 😉

Yield: 18 crescents

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 9-inch pie dough (store bought or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • coarse sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Roll out pie crust into a 9 inch circle (or if it’s store bought…open the package and unroll the pie crust) and slice into 18 triangles (like you would a pizza).
  3. Spread each triangle with a healthy amount of Nutella. Roll into a crescent, starting with the wide end. Continue till all triangles are filled with Nutella. Transfer crescents to baking sheet, leaving about an inch for possible spreading.
  4. Brush the top of each Nutella crescent with the melted butter and sprinkle generously with coarse sugar. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    Drooled over this picture on Pinterest for two weeks until I cracked! Made them last night. Ridiculously simple and positively divine. My husband and I (almost) devoured them all…clearly, we need to work on moderation. Thank you for a great recipe!

    Just a question. I don’t happen to have a pie crust in my freezer, but I have a puff pastry sheet instead, just hangin’ out. Do you think some version could be made with that? Or should I get a pie crust?

    Goodness gracious – these look wonderful! I can almost imagine the crunch of flaky pie crust accompanied by the sweet Nutella. I want to be a last-minute guest at your house!

    Don’t you just love it when you can stand in your kitchen for a few minutes and solve a problem without leaving the room. These look gorgeous. I’m so glad you thought to share them with us.

      No, I said I did not have any room temperature butter for cookies. It takes butter over an hour to come to room temp, but it takes me 20 seconds to melt butter in my microwave.

    I have those hand pie molds! My husb and I use them to make potsticker dumplings, which always feels vaguely like cheating but they come out perfectly every time. These little nutella treats are genius. I’ll bet they were impossible to stop eating. Well done!

    I made these last week for my blog – Quick & Easy Chocolate Croissants! Pillsbury crescent rolls + Nestle’s Chocolate Chips = easiest dessert ever! Nutella is a great way to mix it up!
