    Step 2

    In the bowl of a standing mixer cream the butter and sugar (about two minutes).

    Step 3

    Add the egg yolks and vanilla and mix until combined.

    Step 4

    With the mixer on low, add the flour and salt. Mix until it forms a soft dough. Transfer the dough on to a lightly floured surface. Shape it into a square and divide it in half.

    Step 5

    Transfer each half to a sheet of plastic wrap. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Unwrap one half of the dough and place on a piece of lightly floured parchment paper.

    Step 6

    Roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness, about 10x8 rectangle. Using a spatula, spread 1/4 cup of Nutella on the dough leaving 1/4-inch edge all around.

    Step 7

    Using the parchment as a guide, roll the dough starting from the longest side into a tight log. Wrap the parchment paper around the log and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or freeze for 15.

    Step 8

    Repeat previous step with the remaining half. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap the log and slice into approximately 1/3-inch slices.

    Step 9

    Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet 1-2" apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until just golden around the edges.

    Step 10

    Remove from the oven and let cool. Enjoy!
