  • In a bowl, mix the butter, confectioners' sugar, egg, vanilla seeds and salt. Mix briefly to blend until all the ingredients are combined, but without over working. Add the sifted flour and mix again briefly.

  • Roll this mixture up into a ball, wrap it with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 1 hour in the fridge.

  • Take the dough out of the fridge and cut into 2 parts with a knife.

  • Roll out each piece between 2 pieces of parchment paper to a thickness of 1/4 of an inch. Rest the two layers in the fridge for at least 10 minutes (ideally 1 hour).

  • Remove the 2 layers from the fridge. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Using smaller cutters, cut a shape out of the top cookies.

  • Bake on the middle shelf of the oven at 350 degrees F for approx. 10 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool.

  • Using a pastry bag, put 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella® hazelnut spread onto each cookie without a hole. Then cover with the top cookie.

My family loved these cookies. We baked them for Christmas Eve dessert. We (my daughter and I) followed the recipe as written although we needed to add an additional tbsp or two of milk because the dough was a bit too dry. Dough was easy to roll and the right stiffness after refrigeration. We used a drinking glass to make tops and bottoms of the cookies. We used a small star shaped cookie cutter to make cut outs in cookie tops. We baked cookies as stated. We baked star shaped cut outs too. After they cooled we spread Nutella on cookie bottoms and covered with cookie tops. We added sprinkles to the star shaped cookies by brushing on a powdered sugar-water glaze to make the sprinkles stick to cookies. My family loved these cookies! Will definitely bake again. Read More
