Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

My daughter received Green and Black's Chocolate cookbook, Unwrapped for her birthday. Lucky us! Although this recipe is not on-line, there are many others that are and you could also buy the cookbook!

3/4 C butter, softened
3/4 C sugar
1 large egg
1 C self-rising flour (we use spelt and baking powder)
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour (we use spelt)
1 C nutella

Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat well. Stir in the 2 flours and mix to a dough. Let it rest for 1 hour. (She put it in the fridge for 30 minutes)

Preheat the oven to 350.

Measure a scant tablespoon of dough. Roll the dough between your palms to form 1 inch balls. Place on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Press your thumb into the middle of the dough to make a hole. Continue with the remaining dough. Place the cookies at least 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets. Using a teaspoon, fill each hole with the nutella.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are just golden. Cool on a wire rack.
**Although nice, I thought they needed a little salt. They end up being soft cookies and don't taste too sweet.
