1 jar (12 ounces) chocolate hazelnut spread

  3. Beat cream cheese and butter in medium bowl 30 seconds on low speed of electric mixer or until smooth. Add egg; beat on medium speed until well blended. Add cake mix; beat at low speed 2 minutes until mixture is smooth and resembles thick cookie dough. Stir in pecans.

  5. Bake 8 minutes. (Cookies will appear undercooked.) Cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks; cool completely.
  6. Spoon 1 teaspoon chocolate hazelnut spread on top of each cookie; sprinkle with powdered sugar.
