These are great little cookies to make in batches and give as Xmas gifts tied up in glassine or clear plastic candy gift bags. You may get more than 48 cookies depending on how small you make them. To achieve a more styled look half way through baking remove the trays and add a few extra halved hazelnuts and chocolate chips to the tops of the cookies then return to the oven. I used chocolate chips which don’t melt too much during baking and hold their shape more-so. This is a good option for these cookies if you can get your hands on this form of chocolate.

Remember to melt your 100g of chocolate beforehand and sift your flour, that way you’ll have these cookies prepared in literally 10-15 mins before baking.

    These look incredible — my family loves Nutella, but I’ve never tried it in cookies before. How well do they keep before getting stale, if I’m giving them as gifts?

    Can I use regular sugar instead of caster?

    Thanks :)

      Personally no, I wouldn’t – I would never use regular in cookies or general baking as the texture will be too gritty.

    Just made these for Xmas gifts, I was worried they wouldn’t turn out as the dough was quite sticky and soft, but they are delicious! Thanks!

    I’m making these but noticed no baking soda, no salt. Is that correct? Hope so!

      Yes that’s right. You can throw in a pinch of salt if you like, won’t do any harm, but I didn’t with these. Tks

    What would a good substitute for the plain flour for a gluten free option? Can’t be having wheat keep me from tasting these!

      Lauren to be honest I am not sure. I rarely cook gluten free food but would guess possibly buckwheat flour would work for these or gluten-free plain flour. Let me know what you do and how you go. Tks

      Hi Christine, in the US caster sugar is known as Superfine sugar. Cheers!
