pillows with nutella®

All year round

45 minutes

Serves: approx. 60 portions / portion: 3 pieces



  • 1 whole egg
  • 5 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 1 cup strong flour
  • ¾ cup wholewheat flour
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp brewer's yeast
  • 3 tbs cubed butter
  • Powdered sugar to taste
  • 4 cups Nutella®



Sift the flours, add the salt and the sugar. In a jug, mix the milk with the egg and the brewer’s yeast, combine the two mixtures and slowly stir while gradually adding the butter.

Once mixed together, leave the mixture to rest for 30 minutes. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out to a thickness of about 1/16th of an inch

Leave the dough to rest for a few minutes before proceeding to cut it into small “pillows” measuring 1.5 x 1.5 in. Once finished, leave them to rise for 1 hour.

Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes. (until golden brown).

Once the pillows have cooled down, cut a small hole in one side and fill with 1 tsp of Nutella® using a piping bag. Dust with powdered sugar to serve.
