I wish it was my idea to make Carrot Crescents with Nutella but my inspiration was from Dajana
Take a look at her creations. You will be pleasantly surprised !
I made some changes but the idea of making crescents with finely grated carrots remains the same.

I used lard instead of butter and Nutella to stuff them instead of jam. You may use any kind of spread you prefer, of course.

Here you can see one circle rolled out to have 11 inches diameter, cut to have 8 pizza style cut crescents. I covered the dought with Nutella after I cut the dough. I did it so to avoid Nutella leaking while in the oven. ยฝ tsp of Nutella is enough for each crescent.
