Peanut Butter and Nutella Cookies
Posted on August 22, 2012
THESE COOKIES ARE SOO GOOOD! Packed with flavor, soft yet firm and down right delicious…we have been selfishly hoarding them for the past 48 hours and I just ate two for breakfast :0) …. what? I went to yoga this morning…
Anyway, I found this recipe on Pinterest and modified it with a bit more peanut butter and Nutella. Here is what you need:
2 sticks butter at room temperature
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2-3 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 – 1 cup Nutella
Cream butter, peanut butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together in a medium bowl until smooth.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a smaller bowl and mix together. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture a 1/3 at a time and mix well.
Add the Nutella in big globs on top of the dough and take a butter knife to swirl it throughout. DO NOT OVER SWIRL!
Chill the dough in the fridge for 20-30 minutes prior to baking.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Spoon the cookies onto the sheets and bake for 10 minutes- just until slightly brown at the edges.
Yum- enjoy!! I will definitely be making these again soon…
