My love affair with Nutella began in Italy circa 2001. Since then it has become more popular in this country. Rightly so; I cannot think of a food I like better than the chocolaty hazelnuty spread.
It seems as though you all feel the same way. This Nutella Cupcake recipe is the most popular recipe on Yummy Mummy.
So I got to thinking... If the Nutella Cupcake recipe is your favorite, I had better come up with a Nutella filled cookie recipe. From the outside these cookies look like your average sugar cookies, but on the inside there's a gooey Nutella surprise.
Here's how you do it:
Ingredients*1 batch sugar cookie dough (I used a box of Trader Joe's mix I had in my cupboard from Christmas)

*1 jar Nutella or other chocolate hazelnut spread
Scoop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough. Flatten into a disk. Drop a teaspoon of Nutella into the center.
Fold the sides of the dough together.
Pinch the dough together well.
Place seam side down on a cookie sheet.
Chill cookie dough for 10 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden.
Until you can get to your favorite Nutelleria for some Nutella pizza or panini, try the cookies or cupcakes.
