Nutella Tarts

Nutella Heaven

If you have never tried Nutella... you must!

Nutella is made from hazelnuts and has the consistency of a spreadable peanut butter.

A lot of people spread it on bread and eat it for breakfast.

I like to eat it as a treat, with it's smooth taste, it's as decadent as dessert.

Nutella in cased in a tart-like shell with a heart on top is simply... Heaven!

I took detailed shots on how I made this tasty treat, but lost all of the photographs that were on my cameras memory card.  So, unfortunately I can only share the recipe and instructions.

Tart Dough:

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Butter, cold, cut into 1" squares
1 Egg
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Jar Nutella Spread

In a large bowl add the flour, sugar and salt and mix together with a whisk. 

Cut the butter into pats and add the butter to the flour mixture.  Using a food processor, pastry blendor or just your good ole' hands to mix the butter and flour together creating small bits of butter and flour.

In a small bowl, add the egg, milk and vanilla and mix well.

Add the egg mixture to the flour bowl and blend together to make a fairly moist dough.

Add flour to your rolling surface and roll the dough out to about of an 1/4" to cut out your circles about 3" x 3" and place each circle in your small cupcake pan.

Add 1 teaspoon of nutella to each tart.*

This dough should make about about 20 tarts.

I saved some of the dough to cut out tiny hearts to top each tart.

*I would use a pastry bag to do this method. like I DIDN'T! :)
