Shortbread Nutella Cookies Recipes

  • Author: Nicole Nared-Washington from Brown Sugar Food Blog


  • 1 ½ c. unsalted butter, softened (3 sticks butter)
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tsp. Almond extract
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ c. flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 c. chocolate hazelnut spread


  1. In a large bowl using a handheld or standing mixer, add the butter and blend with sugar until light and fluffy.
  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.
  3. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured service. Roll the dough out into a rectangle stretch about 11 inches by 8. 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.
  4. Once the cookies have cooled, spread the chocolate hazelnut spread on one cookie and join with another. Serve as desired.
  5. NOTE: You can also use a cookie press for this recipe and shapes as well.
