Decorating tips:

  • Lightly dust the cookies with icing sugar for a classic touch.
  • Drizzle melted chocolate on top for an extra layer of deliciousness.
  • Sprinkle some finely chopped nuts on top for added texture and flavor.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious dessert experience.

Ingredients:

  • 130 g almond flour
  • 140 g (4.9 oz) erythritol
  • 1 large egg
  • 220 g (7.7 oz) all-purpose flour
  • 0.35 oz (10 g) baking powder (half a packet)
  • 50 g chocolate chips
  • Nutella (for the filling, frozen in advance in small portions)
  1. Prepare the dough:
    • In a bowl, combine the erythritol and softened butter, creaming until light and fluffy.
    • Add the egg and mix well until completely incorporated.
    • Gradually add the all-purpose flour and baking powder to the mixture, stirring until a dough forms.
    • Stir in chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  2. Cool the dough:
    • Let the dough chill in the refrigerator for a short while so that it firms up and is easier to handle.
  3. Shape and fill the cookies:
    • Preheat your oven to 374°F (190°C).
    • Divide the dough into seven equal portions, about 80–90 g (2.8–3.2 oz) each.
    • Flatten each portion into a disk, place a piece of frozen Nutella in the center and wrap the dough around it, sealing the edges to enclose the filling.
    • Form a ball with each portion of stuffed dough and flatten it slightly.
  4. Freeze and cook:
    • Freeze prepared cookie dough balls for 10 to 15 minutes to help them hold their shape while baking.
    • Place the cooled dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, making sure to leave enough space between each cookie.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 12 minutes. Cookies may appear slightly undercooked, but they will continue to firm up as they cool.
  5. Let cool and serve:
    • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Final touch: Enjoy these delicious Nutella filled almond cookies with their perfect combination of nutty flavors and a soft and sweet center. Perfect for any occasion that calls for a delicious and indulgent treat.

Appreciate!
