24 cookies


  • 1 16.5 ounce package refrigerated sugar cookie dough

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • ½ cup finely chopped hazelnuts

  • ½ cup chocolate-hazelnut spread


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl stir together the cookie dough and flour. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. In a small bowl whisk together egg and water. Place nuts in a shallow dish. Roll balls in egg mixture, then in nuts to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Press your thumb into the center of each ball.

  2. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. If cookie centers puff during baking, re-press with the back of a measuring teaspoon. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Fill cookies with chocolate-hazelnut spread.
