nutella – an ingredient to prepare this delicious recipe

To prepare this delicious recipe, 15g of Nutella® per person is enough to enjoy!


  1. To make the almond filling:
    Remove the skin from the almonds and place in a food processor. Add the sugar and pulse until powdery.

  2. Transfer the almond paste into a bowl and add cinnamon powder and orange blossom. Keep adding the melted butter a little at a time while mixing in between until the mixture turns stiff.

  3. Roll the filling into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

  4. To make the dough:
    Mix the flour, egg, butter, orange blossom and a pinch of salt, until the dough starts to form.

    Add water a little at a time and knead vigorously until dough becomes smooth and elastic.

  5. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts, cover with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature for 20 min.

    Transfer one part onto a floured surface and keep the remaining parts covered in plastic wrap for later use.

  6. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to form a long rectangle.

    Take 1 tbsp of the almond paste and using your hand, roll into a rod.

  7. To assemble:
    Place an almond rod on one side of the dough, 1cm from the edge, and roll it once in the dough.

    Bend pastry into a crescent shape and using your fingers, pinch the crescent upwards and cut with a pastry wheel. Repeat until all the dough has been used.

  8. Transfer the Corne De Gazelles onto a baking tray, lined with baking paper and leave to rest for at least 3 hours or overnight.

    When ready to bake, set the oven at 180°C. Using a toothpick, prick the bottom side of the cornes and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
