What can be better than Nutella cookies? I have to say, this is one of my favorite coffee companions, the combination of the French buttery sable cookies with the nutty nutella paste makes something that is really hard to resist.
These cookies are made with layers of Nutella in a sweet pastry dough , the idea is to have thin gentle layers of nutella and crumbly dough in every bite.
The process of making these cookies is pretty fast, and even though they appear to be complicated to make, it really don’t take much.
Baking needs to be short, I’m usually tempted to get my dough into a golden brownish color, expecting it to be crunchier making the crumble extract its buttery flavors. In this case overbaking will result in a cookie which will break apart and will not hold the Nutella filling, it’s a gentle cookie, in which we want to preserve the flexible structure of the dough and not making it stiff and crumbly with over baking.
In order to cut the cookies it’s important to use a bread knife, so the cookie dough will not break apart when we divide it.
