- Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line a Baking Sheet with Parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
- In another mixing bowl beat the 2 eggs and the sugar on medium speed until lemon colored and foamy, about 5 minutes. Add the olive oil and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add the flour mixture and mix until fully absorbed. The dough will be rather soft.
- Flour your hands well. Take a rounded tablespoon of the dough and flatten it into a disk. Add about 1 teaspoon of Nutella to the center and fold the dough around it to seal. Place the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheet.
- Beat the remaining 1 egg in a bowl. Brush each cookie with the egg wash. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack.
