These Shortbread Sandwich Cookies with Nutella are a perfect holiday cookie that everyone will enjoy. It is a buttery shortbread cookie with Nutella filling to give a sweet touch!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 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 1/2 c. All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 1 c. chocolate hazelnut spread


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees
  2. In a large bowl, using a handheld or standing mixer, add the butter and blend with sugar until light and fluffy. 
  3. Next, add the egg, milk, almond, and vanilla extract, and mix them. 
  4. In a separate large bowl, combine the dry ingredients of flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together. Add the flour mixture, one cup at a time into the wet ingredients. A form of dough will form. 
  5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured service. Use a rolling pin and roll the dough out into a rectangle stretch about 11 inches by 8. 
  6. Use a cookie cutter and cut it into even pieces. Place cookies onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or wax paper. Place the cookies about an inch and a half apart and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool, and place them on a baking rack.
  7. Once the cookies have cooled, spread the chocolate hazelnut spread on one cookie and join it with another cookie. Serve as desired.
  8. NOTE: You can also use a cookie press for this recipe to make different shapes as well.
