Sugar Cookie Surprise With Nutella Spread

Did anyone say nutella?  I was at a coffee house the other day and had this amazing cookie.  Which we will call the Hazelnut tart cookie.  Of course my wheels started a turning on how I could make a copy cat of this cookie.  The first thing that popped to mind was a sugar cookie with nutella inside. 
Wanting to make this simple I purchased a jar of nutella and a package of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.

Follow directions on the sugar cookie package.  I do suggest though that you cut the butter down to 1/3 cup instead of the full 1/2 cup on the recipe.  Due to the dough becoming to sticky and soft to work with.  Add flour along the way to make stiff for rolling and cutting.  It's time to assemble these easy cookies by rolling out the dough and cutting shapes.  Using a square cookie cutter or round will do just fine.  Make sure to cut even amount of squares.  Spread 1 teaspoon of nutella on one and place another piece over to seal together.  Gently press together around the edges to seal.  They will come out looking like ravioli.

Place cookies on baking sheets and bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned.

For extra appeal I added melted chocolate on top after the cookies cooled. 
I have to say that these cookies turned out easy to make and tasted so good I couldn't just eat one. 
Let me know if you try them out and what you think.
