Folded Hazelnut Cookies

 Folded Hazelnut Cookies
We made these cookies when my boys were small. The boys were covered in flour, with aprons wrapped around them and Nutella on their faces. — Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania
24 ServingsPrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix hazelnuts and sugar.
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, confectioners' sugar and cornstarch.
  • Cut in butter until crumbly. Transfer to a clean work surface. Knead
  • gently until mixture forms a smooth dough, about 2 minutes (dough
  • will be crumbly but will come together).
  • Divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion
  • to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter.
  • Place 1/4 teaspoon Nutella in center. Fold dough partially in half,
  • just enough to cover filling.
  • Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Brush with beaten egg;
  • sprinkle with hazelnut mixture. Bake 10-12 minutes or until bottoms
  • are light brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield:
  • about 2 dozen.
