For the nutella filling:
Make the cookie dough. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the vanilla extract and the cold butter cut in cubes and mix with your hands or a fork until the dough starts to hold together.
Chill. Shape the dough into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Prep your tools. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
Roll out dough. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll into a 0.1 inch thick circle on a lightly floured surface.
Using a 2-inch cookie cutter, cut the dough into rounds. Repeat the process with the remaining trimmings, until no dough is left. If the leftover trimmings get soft, wrap and refrigerate them before repeating the process. In the end, you will end up having about 46 – 48 cookies.
Bake. Place the cookies 1-inch apart on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 9-11minutes.
Remove cookies from the oven and let cool for 20 minutes. The cookies will still be soft when taken out from the oven, but they will get harder as they cool.
Mix ingredients. Add butter and Nutella in a medium bowl and using an electric mixer whisk until fluffy.
Assemble the cookies. Turn them upside down and fill half of them with 1 tbsp of filling. Top each cookie with the remaining cookies and press down to help the filling spread.
You can store the cookies at room temperature for 2-3 days or in the fridge for up to 10 days. As the filling hardens when refrigerated, take the cookies out of the fridge 10 minutes before eating them to let the filling soften.
If you prefer a stronger Nutella flavor, you can leave out the butter and use just Nutella for the filling. The decision is up to you!
