  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (500 g)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, cold (225 g)
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • ½ cup water (120 ml)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil (55 g)
  • 2 cups chocolate spread (like Nutella)


  1. Dough Preparation: In a mixer with the paddle attachment, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Adding Liquids: Pour in water and oil, mixing just until the dough forms large, moist lumps.
  3. Chilling Dough: Form the dough into a ball, then divide into four equal parts. Shape each into a rectangle, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Rolling and Filling: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll each dough piece into a 12″x8″ rectangle. Spread about ½ cup of chocolate spread over each.
  5. Forming Cookies: Roll the dough tightly from the shorter end. Place on a lined baking sheet. Make horizontal cuts along the dough, not fully separating the slices.
  6. Baking: Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden.
  7. Cooling and Cutting: Cool for 10-15 minutes, then cut into cookies using the pre-made cuts.
  8. Finishing: Once fully cooled, dust with powdered sugar.

Recipe Notes:

  • Handle the dough gently to keep it flaky.
  • Use high-quality chocolate spread for the best flavor.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
