  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and fluffy using the whisk attachment.
  • Mix in the corn syrup, vanilla, hazelnut extract, egg, and Nutella scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl so that everything gets mixed in.

  • Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets or line with parchment paper.
