Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325°F and position the baking rack in the middle of the oven.

Transfer the cookies onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 10—11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool down on the tray.

Fill a piping bag fitted with a small nozzle (about 1/16th of an inch) with the Nutella® hazelnut spread and pipe 1/2 tbsp of Nutella® hazelnut spread on half of the cookies and assemble with the other half.

Finish all of your cutout cookies with Nutella® hazelnut spread.

Enjoy!
