Folded Hazelnut Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
Makesabout 2 dozen
4 stars, could be 5 with some modifications. I was concerned the dough would be difficult to roll out, but was pleasantly surprised that it rolled well with the right amount of flour on the board. It is a buttery, delicious dough. I agree with the other comments about the dough cracking when folded over. I did quite a bit of smoothing after folding which did make these putzy to make. I think the amount of Nutella per cookie is low, the ratio of Nutella to cookie seemed off once they were baked. Also, this may be personal taste, but all who tried these agreed that the topping should have more hazelnuts and less sugar.
Tasty but I found this a time intensive recipe. The dough is quite crumbly. I had little problem rolling it out, but found when folding over the dough cracked at the fold. Not sure if I would make again, especially not at Xmas when I have a lot of cookies to make.
Fabulous!! I have a joint disorder, so I put everything in a zippy bag & knead it all together. Works great. I then use a cookie scoop, flatten it with a glass & follow the rest of the recipe- too hard for me to roll & cut. I do end up with 48 cookies...I'm ok with that!! I don't like chocolate (gasp!!!) so I use bakers filling-fruit or nuts, whatever I'm in the mood for. I also like to use colored sugar...reflective of the holiday. Red fruit filling at Christmas with green sugar & nuts looks lovely!!! (Red fruit with blue sugar is fun for the 4th too!!) I've made these with gluten free flour (Bob's Mill's 1 to1) OMG!!! Still amazing!!!! No one can believe they're gf!
I also thought it was awfully crumbly but it came together great. A delicate cookie Love them
I mixed all of the ingredients in the food processor and used it to cut in the butter, which I found easier than cutting it in by hand. I wasn't sure that the dough would come together as it was really crumbly, but after a liitle kneading it came together beautifully. My kids love these cookies and have already asked me to make another batch.
Nutella is a good filling
The person who submitted this recipe must have the patience of a saint! I tried making these today with my 2 boys, ages 4 and 5. I quadrupled the batch to give out as Christmas gifts in my treat packages. Delicious! Mine turned out exactly like the pictures, my boys' cookies..... not so much, but they still taste just as good!
This delicate cookie is quick to make and tastes delicious! The Nutella and the hazelnut topping add just the right amount of sweetness to this feathery-light shortbread cookie.
These are amazing. Had to make a double batch the first time.
