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.
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
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
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
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.
