Here ya go, another fantastic cookie for the holiday season! This one has Italian written all over it! They are crisp on the exterior and light and tender on the interior!
Nutella is one of those things I love indulging in, even if it is something as simple as dunking an animal cookie in there, and yes this is something me and my 3 year old enjoy doing. A while back I posted a recipe for Nutella Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting, you should check them out too! If you've never had Nutella you are crazy you have been missing out big time!!! Its a wonderful chocolate hazelnut spread and the stuff is addicting!!!
Then there is the mascarpone cheese. Its an Italian sweet cream cheese and just recently really started using it in my baking and cooking. I used it in the Roasted Butternut Squash & Apple Soup I posted the other day, it adds a wonderfully richness to it. The mascarpone gives you a very tender cookie!
