By the time this is posted, I’ll be on Long Island soaking up the sun with friends for the weekend. Happy Birthday to me!

Holy moly, these are GOOD! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Now, I love nuts and I love chocolate and I LOVE cookies…. Um… excuse me while I go grab another one of these… As I was saying! These are GOOD. I found the recipe for these little guys here. Nutella is possibly on my list of top 5 favorite foods (lets see: pasta, bolognese sauce, cheese, Nutella, Coke Zero. yup.). Cookies are right up there too, so combined? Delish. These were a little tricky to make, and the process wasn’t made any easier by my oven breaking down (ugh… I can’t go there just yet…). But they’re worth it! Even though your hands and kitchen may get covered in sticky peanut butter…

Peanut Butter Nutella Stuffed Cookies (makes 18-20)
1/2 cup Butter, room temp
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
For the Filling:
1/4 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Cocoa
3 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
For the Topping:
1/4 cup Peanuts (run through the food processor)
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt

Cream the butter and sugars together, and then add the egg and mix. Stir in vanilla and peanut butter, when incorporated, add flour and salt. Refrigerate for an hour or so while you make the filling and topping.

For the filling, combine all ingredients and mix until creamy. You should be able to roll little balls of the filling in your hands. If it’s too sticky, add some more powdered sugar. Grind the topping ingredients together and place in a shallow bowl.

Preheat to 375. When the cookie dough is chilled enough, take 1 Tbsp of dough and roll into a flat disc. If the dough is way too sticky, ad a little more flour. Place a ball of filling in the middle, and another 1 Tbsp disc of dough on top. Roll between hands to form one big ball. Roll this in the topping, then place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Press with your fingers to flatten slightly. Repeat! Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes. Remove and let cool on the cookie sheet before transfering to a cooling rack.

    Love this! Do you think I could sub the cookie dough for a store bought dough? I’m a terribly inexperienced baker and a bit short on time but would love to make this..

    Pam – you might be able to substitute peanut butter cookie dough for the outside, but you’d have to make the filling and the topping yourself ;) let us know how it goes!

    I tried this tonight with store bought dough, unfortunately they came out too hard/crispy.. Not sure if I can blame the dough though – I’m a terrible terrible baker haha. Will try this again following your recipe some time soon!
