Nutella Thumbprint Cookies
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup chopped chocolate
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup butter
- 2 egg yolks
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- About ½ cup of Nutella hazelnut-chocolate for filling
- In a large bowl, pour flour, powdered sugar, salt, and chocolate. Stir it all together until mixed.
- Separately, in an electric mixer bowl (or a large bowl), put butter and beat it about 1-2 minutes at medium speed until it is fluffy.
- Then, stir egg yolks with a whisk in a cup.
- When the egg yolks are combined, add them to the butter along with the vanilla extract. Beat them with mixer until combines.
- Then, add the flour mixture to the mixer bowl. Beat them together for several minutes on low speed until the dough combines and becomes thick.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the dough on a wax paper. Knead it until smooth.
- After that, break the dough into 28 separated little balls (approximately 1 inch each). Line the balls in a row in 1 (or 2 if necessary) large baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
- And then, form the balls by pressing your thumb (or you can also use a measuring spoon) right in the center of each ball.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes.
- Place them on wire racks or tray to let them cool.
- Have the cookies reached room temperature, put about ½ teaspoon of Nutella into the indented center of each cookie.
- In order to have a proper measurement of flour, you can pick your knife as a help. Put the knife on top of the measuring cup to have an exact 1 cup flour for your recipe.
- When placing the ball-dough onto the baking sheet, be sure to have each ball one inch apart on the paper.
- Before filling in the Nutella to the cookies, you might want to microwave it first for 20 seconds in a microwave-safe bowl. This way makes you easier to place Nutella onto the center of the cookies.
