Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer or by hand, beat butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and ricotta, and continue to mix until smooth. Stir in flour mixture until combined.
  3. Roll dough between two sheets of plastic wrap into a rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Remove top of layer of plastic wrap, and evenly spread Nutella over the cookie dough. It should cover the surface almost all the way to the edges.
  4. Starting with one of the short sides, carefully roll the dough into a cylinder. Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 4-24 hours.
  5. After dough has chilled, remove it from the plastic wrap and slice into 1/2″ thick cookies. Place 1″ apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silicone mats. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
  6. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool before enjoying.
