Soft and chewy with a Nutella surprise inside, so delicious it’ll be hard to keep your hand out of the cookie jar! When you bite into these peanut butter cookies, you will see and taste a delicious center of Nutella filling. A perfect combination and great for gift giving as well.
The fine folks over at Gold Medal Flour asked me to come up with a recipe fit for this holiday season. I prefer unbleached all purpose flour for my recipes, but Gold Medal Flour also offers several other varieties including self-rising, whole wheat, “Better for Bread”, all-purpose organic and white whole wheat flour, among others.
It’s a tradition for me to make my peanut butter cookies every Christmas, and I’ve made variations of them as well such as these Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies and these Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.
I was inspired by several cookies I’ve seen around where a peanut butter mixture is rolled inside a chocolate cookie. I decided to do the opposite and use my peanut butter cookies stuffed with a Nutella mixture. the results were amazing!
[Get the full printable recipe below] The Nutella filling is made up of peanut butter, powdered sugar and Nutella. It forms a soft dough that’s easy to work with.
After you make the cookie dough, you’ll pull it out by heaping tablespoons…
Roll it into a ball, flatten it, place a teaspoon of Nutella filling in the middle, spread it out a little to flatten it, then close the cookie dough around it and roll into a ball.
Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and cross them with the tines of a fork. Bake, cool, devour.
I couldn’t keep everyone’s hands out of these. I’ll be making another batch this week to send to school for teacher gifts.
