Crostatine di Nutella
11/3 cup of flour
3/4 cup of butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup of sugar
a pinch of salt
21/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 jar of Nutella
1 jar sprinkles to decorate (optional)
In a bowl mix the flour, salt, baking powder, egg and butter (cut in small pieces). Mix until you have a soft dough and then form into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Put in the fridge for at least an hour. Take the dough and start working with it in small pieces start rolling it out using as much flour as you need so it does not stick.
Using a cupcake pan determine what size circles you need to cut and cut the circles out put them in the cupcake liners and in the pan.
Scoop about a tablespoon of Nutella into the middle of the dough. Add sprinkles if you like. Pinch some of the remaining dough into little round balls, about a half-inch in circumference, to decorate the top of the cookies, also optional.
