“NUTELLOTTI” NUTELLA COOKIE RECIPE
Makes: About 15 cookies
Cook Time: 30 minutes
For this recipe, you will need:
6.5 oz. (180g) nutella for the dough, plus about 1 tsp per cookie for topping
1 egg, whisked
1 1/8 cup (140g) all-purpose flour
Crushed hazelnuts for topping (optional)
One or two baking sheets
Preheat an oven to 355 degrees F (180 C).
Combine the nutella, egg and flour in a bowl and begin mixing them with a spatula. When a solid dough starts to form, knead it in the bowl by hand until it is very even and consistent. The dough should be quite firm.
Break off small pieces of the dough, big enough to roll into balls that are about 1 1/4-inches (~3.5cm) in diameter. Do so and arrange the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press a thumb or finger into the center of each to form a shallow depression.
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool to the touch. Finish by filling the center of each cookie with a small spoonful of Nutella and topping them with a sprinkle of crushed hazelnuts (optional).
