How to prepare Nutellotti (Soft Nutella cookies)
To prepare the Nutellotti, place 3/4 cup (180 g) of Nutella in a stand mixer bowl equipped with beaters 1 together with a whole egg 2. Whip for 2 minutes 3
to mix all of the ingredients well 4, then stop the whisk and add the flour through a sieve 5. Mix everything with a spatula 6
until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous dough 7; shape and place in the fridge to rest for at least 15-20 minutes covered with transparent wrap 8. After the necessary time has elapsed, remove the dough from the refrigerator 9
and form balls of 0.5 oz (15 g) each with your hand 10, then place on a drip pan lined with a sheet of baking paper 11: you will obtain approximately 25 balls. Use your fingers to flatten the center of each ball to create a cavity 12.
Once this has been completed 13, put the Nutella in a star-shaped pastry bag and fill the cookies, making a small tuft in the center of each one 14. Once you've filled all the cookies 15,
top them with chopped hazelnuts 16. Cook in a static oven preheated to 340°F (170° C) for about 10 minutes. When they are ready (the cookies will be quite soft) 17, let them cool on a baking rack. When cooled, serve and enjoy your Nutellotti 18!
Store the Nutellotti (soft Nutella cookies) at room temperature covered by a glass cloche for up to a week. Freezing is not recommended.
Nutellotti are really tasty and inviting sweets, but be careful to respect the cooking time, otherwise the Nutella could dry out! If you also wish to change the topping, powdered sugar can be used at the end instead of chopped hazelnuts.
