Nutella Cookies with Filling (Nutellotti)

Nutellotti are one of the easiest cookies you can make.

With only 3 ingredients, and 10 minutes in the oven they are simply irresistible.

I’m yet to see an Italian family that doesn’t have a jar of nutella in the cupboard.

And it’s arguably one of the most addictive spreads on the PLANET!

What can I say, so are these nutella cookies 🙂

If you have a few minutes, nutella, flour and an egg you can make this hazelnut and chocolate madness while watching your favorite show.

Ingredients

For the dough:

For the filling:

  • cup nutella
  • 2 tbsp hazelnuts (toasted & chopped)

Instructions

  • Using a spatular mix together nutella, egg and flour until combined. You should get a shiny loaf of nutella dough. Wrap with a plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 15-20 pieces and roll each into a ball. They’ll be rolling super easy just with your hands, no flour needed.
    You can vary the size and see if you like them smaller or a bit bigger.
  • Place nutella balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Using your finger pad or a round end of a wooden spoon press down the center of each cookie making a hole approx half way through the cookie.
  • Bake in a preheated to 375F oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool completely. Using a pastry bag fill each cookie hole with nutella and sprinkle with chopped roasted hazelnuts.

@Italian Recipe Book, I wonder if the difference is European Nutella vs. the kind sold in the U.S.? The ingredients are rather different (more hazelnut in the European kind, a lot more sugar for that sold in America - which is basically frosting).

That's so strange..I make them quite often and they turn out perfect every single time. The dough should be pretty thick to roll the cookie balls in your hands. If it's still too liquid, add more flour. Sorry about your experience... Hope you give these cookies another try!
