Nutella Linzer Cookies

The following recipe is from the December 30 edition of our weekly recipe newsletter. To receive this newsletter in your inbox, sign up here!

Nutella is a beautiful thing. Chocolate and hazelnuts brought together into a creamy spread—what's not to love? Spread on a baguette, in a sweet crêpe, or even eaten out of the container in front of the fridge, it always satisfies.

This is a recipe for those who are looking for something a bit more presentable than a spoonful of Nutella or a smear on a piece of toast. These Nutella Linzer Cookies from Unforgettable Desserts by Dede Wilson are a play on the linzer cookie. The classic linzer is a shortbread dough made with ground hazelnuts, sandwiched with a layer of jam, most often raspberry. These cookies adhere to the traditional hazelnuts, but replace the jam with a layer of Nutella. If you have ever thought about spreading a spoonful of Nutella onto a piece shortbread but thought it too decadent, these cookies are your excuse to go to town.
