Pecan Nutella Heart CookiesA cookie similar to the Linzer cookie, but filled with Nutella rather than jam. The cookies will be a little crumbly, so take care when filling with Nutella (or jam) that you don't break them.
170g unsalted butter, softened
130g icing sugar
225g plain flour
130g pecans, finely ground
Nutella to fill cookies
Using an electric whisk, cream the softened butter and sugar together until fluffy.
Add the egg and beat again.
Add the flour and cornflour to the mixture and cream together.
Stir in the ground pecan nuts, mixing well.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 3mm thickness.
Using cookie cutters, cut into hearts or shapes of your choice, use smaller cutters to cut the middles out of half of the cookies.
Place them onto ungreased baking sheets and chill for 30 minutes or longer.
Heat the oven to 170ºC, and bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
Fill cookies with a little Nutella and sandwich together.
These were made for World Nutella Day!
