Ingredients

  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 3/4 cup Nutella room temperature
  • 1 cup all-purpose-flour spoon and level

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup Nutella room temperature
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whisk together the egg and 3/4 cup Nutella for about 2 minutes until the mixture is glossy.
  • Add flour and beat until combined. It's important to measure the flour correctly to avoid adding too much, I prefer using a kitchen scale but if you're using a measuring cup, use a spoon to fill the cup with flour and don't scoop it.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for 10-15 minutes. Don't leave the dough longer in the fridge or the dough will get cracked when forming the balls.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and form 20-25 cookie balls. Place cookie balls on the baking sheet.
  • Use your finger or the end of a wooden cooking spoon to make a dent in the center of each cookie.
  • Fill the hole with Nutella. The easiest way is to use a pastry bag or a Zip Lock bag for this.
  • Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on top of the Nutella.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes. Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  • Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container in a cool and dry place. They will keep fresh for about a week.

Notes

Recipe updated 12/21 because some readers had problems with the dough being too dry. I reduced the amount of flour from 1 1/4 cups to 1 cup. Please measure the flour correctly using the spoon and level method or use a kitchen scale!
