Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the 1/2 cup Nutella, egg and Vanillina in a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer beat until smooth.

Add in the flour and beat until just absorbed and a dough forms.

Roll the dough into 1 level tablespoon sized balls and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Using your finger, make indentations in the middle of each cookie. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely before filling.

Spoon about a teaspoon of Nutella into the indentations. Top with crushed pistachios or sprinkles. Or both!
