Chocolate Hazelnut Shortbread


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
  • Additional confectioners' sugar, optional


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter, Nutella and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Add hazelnuts; mix well.
  • 2. Divide dough in half; shape each into a disk. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/4-in. scalloped round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until bottoms are light brown, 8-10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. If desired, dust with confectioners' sugar.

    Help! I followed the recipe verbatim and ended up with a powdery dough that I cannot shape, roll, or even begin to use a cookie cutter with. And I purchased Nutella specially for this recipe. How can I "fix this"???
