Recipe Thursday-Peanut Butter Nutella Swirl Cookies

Posted on July 19th, 2012 | Posted in Cookies, Recipes

I was recently part of a gift exchange called favorite things. I highly recommend this format of gift exchange. Each participant brings 4 of their favorite things (with a price limit) and then you put four copies of your name in a hat and pass it around. Everyone will receive four different items that are people’s favorite things! All of this to say that I was the recipient of a large jar of Nutella! I hopped on Pinterest and found a plethera of Nutella recipes, but the one that caught my eye was Peanut Butter Nutella Swirl Cookies. Since I love both peanut butter and Nutella I chose this recipe. They turned out nice and soft which is always a concern of mine when making peanut butter cookies. I made these cookies for a Lia Sophia party that I hosted. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Nutella Swirl Cookies

Ingredients
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (880000)
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter (991611)
1/2 cup white sugar (991842)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (NSU2250)
1 egg (EGG011)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (NFC1055)

Method 
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.
