Hazelnut sandwiches

Posted by moderndaygourmet on December 24, 2007

1/2 cup hazelnuts (toasted, skinned, cooled)
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar (divided use)
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 stick butter (cold, cut into pieces)
1 (13 ounce) jar Nutella

Pulse nuts with 1/4 cup sugar in food processor until nuts are finely ground. Add flour and pinch of salt, pulsing until combined. Add butter, and pulse until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half and roll into 2 logs about 1 inch wide on a floured surface. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.

Cut logs into 1/2 inch slices and place on baking sheet. Bake about 12 minutes at 350 until bottom edges turn a pale golden color. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Dip tops of warm cookies in remaining 3 tablespoons sugar; cool completely on rack.

Spread Nutella on half of the cookies and sandwich with the remaining cookies. Makes 15-18 sandwiches.
