Heart shaped cookies

About this Recipe

Nutella hearts cookies are delicious shortbread biscuits covered with Nutella. They are very easy to make and perfect for any occasion, if you don’t like Nutella you can replace it with Marmalade. Generally I like to give these cookies to my children’s teachers for Christmas and I have also added them to the Christmas sweets baking lesson. The recipe is taken from the Giallo Zafferano blog.
