Italian Hazelnut Cookies with Nutella® hazelnut spread Two crunchy hazelnut cookie halves, filled with a soft layer of Nutella® hazelnut spread. Is there anything better on a winter’s day? No wonder these Italian cookies are called Lady’s Kisses! A marriage made in heaven.
In a large bowl, mix together hazelnuts, flour and sugar. Mix in butter, egg yolk and salt until combined. Form into ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 3 hours.Advertisement
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Roll dough into 48 small balls, about 2 tsp each. Arrange balls, about 2 inches apart, on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
Bake, in batches, for about 18 minutes or until just set and lightly golden brown. Let cool completely on cooling rack.
Spread or pipe 1 tsp Nutella® hazelnut spread over the bottoms of half of the cookies. Sandwich with remaining cookies.
