Cinnamon Swirl Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients

115 grams butter, softened
115 grams cream cheese, softened
160 grams all-purpose flour
4/1 teaspoon salt
50 grams sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
75 grams Nutella®

Step 1

In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until creamy for about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in flour and salt until mixed well. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or until dough is firm enough to roll. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

Step 2

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into 15" by 12" rectangles and trim the edges. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar evenly over the dough.

Step 3

Starting from the long side, tightly roll the dough into a log. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm for about 2 hours.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 180°C. Remove log from fridge; with a serrated knife, cut log crosswise into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet, flatten slightly with the palm of your hand and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.

Step 5

To make the sandwich cookies, spread or pipe Nutella® onto the inside of one cookie; top with another cookie.
