Remember when I had to sell my goats? This is the recipe I used to comfort myself in my grief. I wanted to try something new, seeing as I’d been self-medicating with cookies for several previous occasions, like selling our sheep and having seven home showings over a few weeks, early in the morning and with small children and house guests in tow.
Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Combine slowly into butter mixture and beat until a soft dough forms. Add Nutella and cut in until evenly distributed in dough. Roll into small balls and press down gently with a fork. Sprinkle with course sugar if desired. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned (be wary of over baking or your cookies will be crumbly and dry). Cool on a cookie rack.
