Melissa's Cuisine: Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

One of my favorite flavor combinations is peanut butter and Nutella.  I often spread the two on a tortilla and roll it around a banana for a quick lunch.  I also enjoy peanut butter and Nutella on graham crackers.  One day I got to thinking about making peanut butter and Nutella cookies.  I took two of my favorite cookie recipes and smashed them together--quite literally!  The result was a delicious cookie that quickly became a family favorite!
I was unsure of how to write out this recipe, since it's really 2 recipes.  If it is unclear, or you have any questions, please let me know so I can make adjustments!

Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

Makes 2 dozen cookies

For the peanut butter cookies you will need:
1/4 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1.  Cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl.

2.  Beat the egg and vanilla into the mixture.

3.  Add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder to the wet mixture and stir until well combined.

Set aside while you make the Nutella cookies.

For the Nutella cookies you will need:
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup Nutella
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Cream margarine, sugar, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl.

2. Beat for about 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.

3. Add the egg and vanilla.

4. Add the Nutella and mix well.

5. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until dough is smooth.

6. Fold in chocolate chips.

To assemble the Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies:

1.  Roll peanut butter cookie dough into 1 inch balls and set aside.

2.  Roll Nutella cookies into 1 inch balls and set aside.

3.  Press 1 Nutella cookie ball on top of 1 Peanut Butter cookie ball and flatten slightly.  *You will want to be sure the peanut butter cookie goes on the bottom as it is more dense and will not spread like the Nutella cookie might.

4.  Place cookie on a greased cookie sheet.  Repeat with remaining cookie dough.

5.  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
