  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, sugar, and salt add to creamed mixture, bring together with a wooden spoon or your hands, when almost together gently add Nutella chips (or regular chips) form into a log, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 2-3 hours.
  • Pre-heat oven to 325°. Line a cookie sheet or 2 with parchment paper.
  • Cut log in 1/4 inch thick slices (or a little thicker or thinner if you prefer), place on cookie sheets and bake for approximately 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool. Enjoy!
  • I used a 1/4 of the dough, I made 1 inch balls, rolled them in ground hazelnuts, made an indentation with the end of a wooden spoon, and baked for approximately 12-14 minutes, then I placed some Nutella chips (or dark chocolate chips) in the indentation as soon as they came out of the oven. Let cool. Enjoy!
