Nutella Sable Cookie Recipe

Nutella Sable Cookie Recipe

Are you looking for a unique take on the traditional Sable Cookie?  Look no further my friends!  Today I have joined a virtual Cookie Swap hosted by Julie at White Lights on Wednesday and have been partnered up with Meaghan from Un Assaggio.  Meaghan and I exchanged our favorite cookie recipes and started baking.  These beyond delicious Nutella Sable Cookies are ones that I know a few of my friends would absolutely die for!  I can’t wait to share this Nutella sable cookie recipe with you because you are sure to love it as much as I do.

I simply followed all of the directions in making traditional Sable Cookies but instead of an egg wash and  filling them with jam I used Nutella!  The Nutella is the perfect addition to this sable cookie recipe, adding a rich and creamy hazelnut flavour.  I love, love, love this combination. 

Tips for Holiday Baking:

  • Double or triple recipes to make large batches of goodies.  This allows cookies and bars to be made in an assembly line fashion and speeds up the process.
  • Pick holiday recipes that compliment each other and look good plated together.  For example every year I like to make Candy Cane Brownies, Eggnog Cookies, Cranberry and Pistachio Shortbread and Peppermint Dipped Chocolate Cookies for a good variety.
  • Participate in a Holiday Baking Exchange!  This is a great way to prepare for a season of holiday entertaining.
  • Start baking early and store goodies in the freezer until they are needed.  I use these large Rubbermaid food storage containers (aff link) to save a mixture of cookies and bars in my freezer so that I have them ready to go for Christmas parties and gatherings all season long.

I found these cookies to be delicate and broke quite a few star tips in the making of them so I would suggest using a heart shaped or round cookie cutter to preserve cookie integrity.  The light buttery flavour combined with the Nutella is absolutely divine though.

How to make Nutella sable cookies:

  • In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat just until incorporated. Do not over mix the dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface knead the dough a few times to bring it together.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (approximately one hour).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and place on a lightly floured work surface.
  • Roll out the dough until it is 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cut out the cookies, placing them on the prepared sheet.
  • Cut half as full stars and cut the other half as stars with a smaller star cut from the centre.
  • Place the baking sheet of cut out cookies in the refrigerator for about 15 -20 minutes to chill the dough.
  • Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes.
  • Dust the star cut out cookies with icing sugar, spread about 1 tsp of Nutella in the centre of the full cookie and top with the sugar coated cookie.
