Nutella sandwich cookies

These cookies are dangerous. Because its a sandwich cookie, it means that you’ll have to eat two at a time. And before you know it, you have probably eaten 10 pieces of cookies. I’ve made these cookies for the first time and I couldn’t stop eating it. The whole tray of cookies was gone within a day – thank goodness my housemate ate most of it.

These cookies are slightly more tedious to make. The cutting of the cookie dough is easy, however the piping of the ganache can get a little messy. A little tip is to wait for the ganache to cool and set first before piping (I only figured that out after making a mess out of the kitchen table top). To reduce the sweetness of Nutella, I’ve added milk and Lindt 90% dark chocolate. The ganache tasted so good that I can eat it alone. In fact, I was dipping strawberries into it because it was absolutely delicious.
