Ingredients with Measurements:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup Nutella

Special equipment needed:

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Add the flour, cornstarch, and salt to the bowl and mix until a soft dough forms.
