WHAT’S FOR Cookies?

Shortbread Cookies with Nutella Filling

15 mins
15 minutes

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?

1 cup salted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a stand mixer, mix the butter, sugar and vanilla together on medium speed for 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
  2. Transfer the dough to foil or parchment sprinkled with flour. Roll out the dough to about 1/3 inch thick. Cover rolled out dough with more foil, parchment or press and seal. Place in the fridge to chill for at least one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat and set aside.
  4. Take your chilled dough out and using a round cookie cutter (or any shape you like) cut out shapes and place on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Once cookies are cooled completely spread Nutella on the inside of one cookie and place the other on top creating a sandwich. Enjoy your little Nutella sandwiches!
