Peanut butter Nutella cookies

August 23, 2012 § 1 Comment

So continuing on my health food kick…I’ve been CRAVING cookies, which is not really a regular thing for me. Ice cream, yes. Chocolate, yes. But not generally cookies.

Now that I’m saying that, these cookies would be great with ice cream!

Anyway, saw this on ye olde Pinterest and was dying to try them. Thankfully we had everything on hand for a change. Now I will make them probably more frequently then I needed. This recipe yielded about 30 pretty large sized cookies for us.

This recipe from The Sisters Cafe as posted by Mindy.

Peanut Butter and Nutella Cookies

1 cup butter (2 sticks) room temperature
2/3 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy – we used creamy)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
heaping 1/3 cup Nutella
1. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla together until smooth.
2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt and add to butter mixture. Add Nutella in dollops over the top of the dough.  Use a butter knife to swirl the Nutella through the dough.  Do not over mix (as I was on the verge of doing because I didn’t follow the directions and just dumped all the Nutella in at once…).
3. Chill the dough in fridge for 15 minutes before spooning onto cookie sheet to firm the nutella.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  Bake until slightly brown at edges.  Let cool a few minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
