Peanut Butter & Nutella Swirl Cookies


I learnt something the hard way this week.

Once you start baking with Nutella, you can't stop.

This time around was nutella cookies.

I don't think I have to tell you how fantastic they were.

Were. As in past tense.

::shame::

Just the words nutella and cookie should be an easy sell.

Plus, as husband mentioned, nutella is good for you. (Marketing works, even if it is directed toward kids).

Doesn't matter to me, I'll do whatever husband says.

I love the way that man thinks.


Peanut Butter & Nutella Swirl Cookies
Adapted from: Sweetest Kitchen

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
Approx. 1/4 cup Nutella

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well blended.

Add flour, baking soda and salt. Drizzle Nutella on top of the dough then swirl it through the dough with a butter knife.

Chill dough 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Roll into balls by hand. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Using a fork, press down the balls to flatten slightly. Bake until edges are very lightly browned (about 7 to 10 minutes).

Allow to rest 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring cookies to a cooling rack.




PS - Huge thanks to The Doctor's Closet for the delicious post and mention of our Peanut Butter Nutella Cookie Cups!

  21. Ooooo, those look seriously yummy! I've never been able to keep Nutella in the house. :) Gotta say though, if you ever try the Rapunzel brand of chocolate hazelnut spread, wow, it is sublime. Nutella to the next dimension. I could eat an entire jar of that in one sitting. Hello truffle filling! Thanks for stopping by, I think I may have to try these once I'm back on carbs. ♥

I love nutella (I highly suggest grilled nutella sandwiches in a panini press!) and pb cookies are my fave, so this sounds like a dream!

  49. Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by the Food Hound! I love your blog, too! And I am totally loving these cookies-- Nutella and peanut butter cookies must be what they serve in heaven, right?? I am almost out of Nutella so I guess I have to buy more OR try to make my own-- it would be dangerous, indeed, if I could make it at a moment's notice :)

    ReplyDelete

  59. If you're in need of the metric measurements, I converted and tested this recipe.

    115 g (1 stick) butter
    190 g peanut butter
    100 g sugar
    90 g brown sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp salt
    190 g flour
    150 g Nutella

    Enjoy - these scored major points with my wife!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Packet of brown sugar? Like a tiny one?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Looking forward to making these this weekend for a cookie exchange. About how many dozen cookies does this make?

    I can't wait to try them! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Had peanut butter with nutella and banna on bread but never a cookie will make some this week end

    ReplyDelete
  63. Do you know how many cookies this makes?

    ReplyDelete
  64. @Anonymous: It depends on the size but roughly a couple dozen. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Are these cookies soft? Look delicious! Want to try them : )

    ReplyDelete
  66. @Anonymous: Yes, they are! As always, if you prefer softer cookies (I do, too), minus a few minutes off of the cook time! Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I just made these and they are amazing! definitely making them again!

    ReplyDelete
  68. My dough came out very crumbly and not easy to roll into balls...anyone have any idea why? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  69. Mine did too. Maybe too much flour? They wern't as gooey and soft as I thought they would be. More crumbly and dense.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks for posting this, I'm going to be sharing it on my blog in a Round-Up of Nutella Recipes, I hope you don't mind. You can check it out here if you like.

    http://virukka.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/how-many-things-can-you-make-with-nutella/

    I just posted your picture with a link back to your site :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Wondering why the dough was crumbly? I was not able to swirl the Nutella with a butter knife at all. Hoping they will still taste yummy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Peanut butter cookie doughs do tend to be rather crumbly. Don't try to roll the dough out and spread nutella on top like a pinwheel cookie.. too crumbly for that!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Can you do it with out the brown sugar or substitute it with white sugar, that's the only ingredient I don't have in the kitchen lol

    ReplyDelete
  74. Those look SO yummy! I featured them today on my “Top 10 Nutella Recipes” post. Feel free to grab a “featured” button. Also I would love for you to share this (and any other creations) at my new linky party “Pin It and Win It Wednesday” @www.cheapcraftymama.com!

  75. nutella is not good for you!!! it has 2.5 g of saturated fat per serving! eakkk! marketing works..but not always in a good way.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Can these be frozen?

  78. How many cookies does this recipe make?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh my, I just made these and they are amazing! Like melt in your mouth good. Dangerous though...I just ate 4 in one sitting!

    ReplyDelete
  80. thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Very easy to make I kneaded the nutella into the dough bc cant swirl, it mixed just a tad more so they are not as pretty. I used baking powder instead of baking soda and crunchy Pb vs smooth. They are good but cant taste nutella like I expected

    ReplyDelete
  82. My cookies were very crunchy despite my attempts at shorter bake times. Any ideas? Thanks for the recipe...they were very tasty.
