Only 4 ingredients needed for these easy and delicious Shortbread Cookies. What goes better with shortbread than Nutella? Well, anything goes with Nutella, but these cookies are the perfect pair.
Nutella. That is it. Oh, you want more? Usually Nutella is enough to stop me in my tracks.
Okay, I’ll add a little more. I have been meaning to perfect a shortbread cookie recipe but then Christmas baking put that on hold for a bit. But Sunday night rolled around and I made myself a batch of shortbread cookies. And then had the brilliant idea to make a little shortbread cookie sandwich with Nutella in the middle. “Not just a hat rack my friend.” (classic Joey)
Shortbread is very simple, not many ingredients but has a big buttery flavor. Paired with the rich Nutella filling makes this one indulgent cookie. I love Nutella, but Dave is not a huge fan. I know, what a weirdo, right? So he opted for just the plain shortbread and was pretty darn happy as well.
Give these a try and let me know what you think! Are you guys on team Nutella?
