Happy Valentine’s DayPosted: February 14, 2008 | |
One thing I learned while baking Hazelnut Nutella Sandwich Cookies is that I could definitely use some practice at rolling out dough evenly. After refrigerating it for two hours as directed, it was so hard that I couldn’t roll it out at all. So I let it rest at room temp for a few minutes until it was more malleable. But by the time I got it rolled out and cut, the dough was much too soft and the cookies wouldn’t hold their shape when I transferred them to the baking sheet! On my third attempt, I finally had a lightbulb moment: roll out the dough to the desired thickness, refrigerate for 10 minutes, then cut and bake. This was the only way I could roll to 1/16″-ish successfully. What are some of your tips and tricks for rolling out cookie dough?
These cookies were quite yummy and were the perfect excuse for me to buy my very first jar of Nutella. I would certainly make them again!
