Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening

  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Combine shortening, Nutella, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add egg. Beat just until blended.
  • Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.
  • Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (using a cookie scoop works great) 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in crisscross pattern with tines of fork.
  • Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to cooling racks to cool completely.
