Nutella Cresents

 I have a granddaughter that love Nutella, I know, the nut does not fall far from the tree...right?  But anyway, I always make cookies for my grandchildren and send them on their birthdays.  I know Lily also loves what could be more perfect than Nutella rolled up in a nice flakey buttery pie crust? 

These cookies were so easy.  You could cheat and buy some refrigerated pie crust...personally I never use that stuff.  I love to make my own.  I sure hope she likes them!  

Happy Birthday Lily!

Until next time

Nutella Crescents

Yield: 18 crescents


1 9-inch pie dough (store bought or homemade)
1/2 cup Nutella
1 tablespoon butter, melted
coarse sugar


Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Roll out pie crust into a 9 inch circle (or if it's store the package and unroll the pie crust) and slice into 18 triangles (like you would a pizza).
Spread each triangle with a healthy amount of Nutella. Roll into a crescent, starting with the wide end. Continue till all triangles are filled with Nutella. Transfer crescents to baking sheet, leaving about an inch for possible spreading.
Brush the top of each Nutella crescent with the melted butter and sprinkle generously with coarse sugar. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
