.nutella peanut butter swirl cookies.
ok, so i've been on a bit of a nutella kick lately. when i ran across this recipe for peanut butter and nutella cookies, what choice did i have?
i was almost certain it would be punishable by "no cookie" if i didn't make them. so, i took the high road and whipped up a batch.
i was worried about swirling the nutella into the peanut butter dough so that it looked all swirly like. i think i halfway did this right, but may need a little more practice in the future.
these cookies are absolutely the best right out of the oven. they come out soft, warm and D-licious! after they cool, i'm going to be honest with you- they are a little more on the chewy and thin side than i'd like, but that really didn't stop me from eating them.
go ahead and get your peanut butter and nutella swirl on!
nutella peanut butter swirl cookies
from the sisters cafe
what you need
1 cup butter (2 sticks) room temperature
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
heaping 1/3 cup Nutella
what you do
Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla together until smooth. 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. Chill the dough in fridge for 15 minutes before spooning onto cookie sheet to firm the nutella. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Bake until slightly brown at edges. Let cool a few minutes on cookie sheet before transferring.
