Nutella Fold Over Cookies

This recipe came from Taste of Home  and I just had to share. These amazing little cookies are delicate and buttery on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside. They’re a great new addition to the standard Christmas cookie tray.

On a side note, my friends, family, and I have a huge love for Nutella… Let me show you the ways:

They’ll be eating Nutella pizza when she comes, heeee haw! A shout out to my beloved friends in ministry. Thanks for keeping me accountable, Clare….lol.

My Gabby Girl shares the love…

My sweet friend Katina took this shot while she was in Chicago…she knew I’d appreciate it.

One of my son’s dearest buddies…He knows.

And my girl Mandy….she’s got the right idea!
Lol, I love this! My amazing friend Jinka loves Nutella…. BIG time.

So, with this….here’s the recipe 😉 Enjoy.
