How To Make Gingerbread Men Cookies with Nutella Hazelnut Spread
These gingerbread men cookies are classic holiday treats, and they’re made tastier with a rich Nutella layer sandwiched between the cookies!
In a bowl, mix together the butter, honey and brown sugar. Mix in the egg yolk.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, gingerbread spice mix and salt. Add to the butter mixture and knead for 1 minute.
Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F.
On a sheet of parchment paper, roll out dough to ⅙-inch thickness. Using a small gingerbread man cookie cutter or other small shaped-item such as a glass, cut out the gingerbread men.
Transfer the gingerbread men to parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake on center rack for 8 to 9 minutes or until slightly golden.
Let cool on rack for 15 minutes.
Spread Nutella® on the back of one gingerbread man then sandwich with another gingerbread man. Repeat with remaining gingerbread men and Nutella® hazelnut spread.
Mix together confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice, adding juice to the sugar, half a teaspoon at a time, to make a smooth paste.
Transfer to a piping bag and decorate cookies with icing.
Serve and enjoy!
