Remember those friends at work that like to try my creations? Well, they also like to send me recipes to try (and bring to work to taste test) lol. And thus, the Peanut Butter & Nutella Swirl Cookies were born.
This recipe was adapted from Delightful Bitefuls (http://delightfulbitefuls.blogspot.com/2011/02/peanut-butter-nutella-swirl-cookies.html).
Peanut Butter & Nutella Swirl Cookies
Yields: Don’t remember lol
-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 (but I’m pretty sure I used around 1/2 cup).
-Parchment paper (not completely necessary)
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Combine butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
3. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Attempt to drizzle Nutella on top of the dough (or just plop in there) then swirl it through the dough with a butter knife.
4. Chill dough 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Roll into balls by hand. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet or spray that baby with some non-stick cooking spray. Using a fork, press down the balls to flatten slightly. Bake until edges are very lightly browned (about 7 to 10 minutes).
5. Allow to rest 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring cookies to a cooling rack.
