Happy Friday! Sharing one of my daughter’s, favourite Italian cookies today, Farfallette con la Nutella. These Nutella cookies are so simple to make but they taste so good! The pastry is tender, flaky and flavourful.
If you’re a beginner dipping your toes in the sea of making pastry from scratch, or you find pastry dough difficult to work with, this is easily the best type of pastry to experiment with because it’s the most forgiving dough to work with.
You could use this pastry for pies, hand pies or turnovers too. Another option would be to shape into pastry cups, blind bake and fill with crema pasticcera (Italian Pastry Cream) and fresh fruit. The possibilities are endless. I didn’t sweeten the pastry because the Nutella is sweet enough but if I were to use for other sweet treats I would add a tablespoon of sugar.
