Recipe Card


  • 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup Nutella®


  • Step 1

    In a large bowl using a handheld or standing mixer, add the butter and blend with sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Step 2

    Add the egg, milk, almond and vanilla extract, and mix together. Add the flour one cup at a time and baking powder and mix into wet ingredients. A form of dough will form.

  • Step 3

    Turn the dough onto a lightly floured service. Roll the dough out into a rectangle stretch about 11 x 8 inches. Use a cookie cutter and cut into even pieces. Place cookies onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Place the cookies about an inch and a half and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool and place them on a baking rack.

  • Step 4

    Once the cookies have cooled, spread the chocolate hazelnut spread on one cookie and join with another. Serve as desired.
