time: 40 minutes

 

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup butter, softened

2 large egg yolks

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

½ to ¾ cup Nutella (or other chocolate hazelnut spread)

24 nuts (walnuts, pecans, pistachios…)

 

Directions:

1 – Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick spray.

2 – In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa and salt. In a separate, larger bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer until it’s light and fluffy (for about 2 minutes). Add egg yolks and vanilla and beat well.

3 – Mix in flour mixture at low speed, just until combined.

4 – Turn dough out onto a sheet of wax paper and knead a few times until it is smooth and shiny. Shape dough into 24 (1-inch) balls.

5 – Arrange balls 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets. Press your thumb into the center of each cookie, leaving an indentation.

6 – Bake one cookie sheet at a time for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

7 – Spoon a generous teaspoonful of Nutella into the center of each cookie.

8 – Add a piece of nuts on top of each cookie.
