I created these cookies for my family after I realized that we had been without Nutella for far too long! The tart dried cranberries are a natural pairing to the hazelnut flavor. We can’t get enough of these sweet treats! —Nancy Mock, Colchester, VT

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup Nutella


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar on high speed until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in cranberries. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a disk. Wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. diamond-shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush with milk.
  3. Bake until edges begin to brown, 18-20 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Spread Nutella over bottoms of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Store in an airtight container.
