Gluten Free Nutella Linzer Cookie

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year…and not just because I get to make and eat a lot of cookies! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have wanted to use Nutella in a recipe for a long time. Every time I buy a small jar, it seems to vanish before I can create something with it.

Does this ever happen in your house?

Well this time I had a plan. I bought the Nutella while the kids were at school, then I hid the jar in the garage.

I know, I know….silly, right?

But, you have to understand my family. They are HUGE nutella fans. They can sniff out a jar of nutella anywhere in my kitchen.

I am happy to report it worked and I hope you and your family enjoys these special cookies.

Linzer dough

The dough mixes up really quickly. Refrigerate for an hour then roll to 1/4 inch thickness.

Cutting out linzer shapes

Use linzer cookie cutters to get the tops and bottoms.
