Nutella Rugelach with Hazelnuts Recipe a Holiday Favorite Cookie


We love Nutella here in our home, my son adores it by the spoonfuls. I have used this for filling many pastries such as thumbprint cookies, filling for cupcakes but I just found our newest favorite cookie for anytime, but especially one for the holiday and gift giving... this one was a huge hit. We have enough jam filled recipes, peanut butter, we never have enough Nutella favorites! Hope this will be your newest favorite too!

Dough
1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks)
1/2 lb. cream cheese (8 oz)
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1- 1/2 cups flour

Mix all together using a heavy duty mixer or by hand kneading the dough until well blended with all the above ingredients. Chill  dough wrapped in plastic or wax paper overnight. Remove from the refrigerator a 1/2 hour before rolling.

Filling:
      1 jar Nutella
      1 or more cups of chopped hazelnuts



  Roll out to 3/8 inch thickness on a floured board. Spread with a light layer of nutella and sprinkle evenly with chopped hazelnuts.


 Roll in jellyroll fashion and cut into slices 1/4 inch wide. Put on cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper.
 ( Optionial: brush with beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with fine sugar).
Bake in 350 degree oven on a middle rack,  10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and loosen with knife immediately place on a wire rack to cool on. Watch carefully not to burn.
I like to spinkle them with a little powdered sugar just for presentation.

These are by far our newest favorite cookie! Happy Holidays Enjoy!
