Makes about 70

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (11 ounce) jar Nutella
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped, toasted hazelnuts
2 cups finely chopped hazelnuts
sifted confectioners' sugar

Grease baking sheets. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat together Nutella and shortening until creamy. Beat in sugar until combined, then beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour and milk alternately and mix until just combined. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts. Cover and refrigerate several hours or until firm. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls, roll in finely chopped hazelnuts, then in confectioners' sugar. Place on prepared baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes or until surface is cracked and cookies are set. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Would make this again.
I just made this cookie last week, and it was fantastic. The hazelnut flavor was very tasty without being too overly sweet. I thought that it was different from the usual cookie. I made a few minor changes: instead of greased cookie sheets I used parchment paper. A jar of Nutella is actually 13 oz I think, but the extra worked fine. I found that I did not need to use 2 1/2 c of hazelnuts. A 2 c bag would have sufficed. Finally, I baked them in my oven for 12 minutes; the cookie came out nice a crunchy. This is definitely a keeper recipe. 5 stars

I used to work at a bakery and these cookies were my favorite to sneak out of the store. I'm so glad I have a recipe for these cookies so that I can make a batch all for myself. 5 stars

These cookies are delicious!! I made them for a friends open house and everyone LOVED them and wanted a copy of the recipe! I actually added milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips to the cookies to make them taste even better! thanks!! 5 stars
