NUTELLA FILLED SUGAR COOKIES
2 hours 10 minutes
These old-fashioned soft and chewy sugar cookies are stuffed with creamy chocolate hazelnut Nutella, giving this classic cookie a sweet and delicious twist.
‣ 3/4 cup Nutella ‣ 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour ‣ 1 teaspoon baking soda ‣ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder ‣ 1/2 teaspoon salt ‣ 1 cup unsalted butter, softened ‣ 2 cup granulated sugar, divided ‣ 1 egg ‣ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Scoop up some Nutella and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Try to make sure the Nutella has a round or oblong shape. Place the Nutella in the freezer for now.
FORM THE NUTELLA
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set bowl aside for now.
WHISK THE DRY INGREDIENTS
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl) cream together the butter and some of the sugar. Mix in the egg and vanilla until combined.
CREAM THE BUTTER AND SUGAR
Turn off the mixer and use a spatula to blend in the dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. Cover dough and chill for 1 hour.
FINISH THE DOUGH
When ready to form cookies, bring out the Nutella and place the remaining sugar in a bowl nearby. Flatten a piece of cookie dough, then place a piece of Nutella in the middle.
WRAP THE NUTELLA
Wrap the dough around the Nutella, roll it into a ball, then coat it in sugar.
ROLL INTO A BALL
Place the finished cookie ball on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once all the dough and Nutella has been used, bake!
