Nutella Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies... need I say more?

First of all, there is no way I can take credit for these little beauties... that goes to Miss Julie Carson over at Joyshope. She is pretty darn amazing... a house full of beautiful kiddos, crafty cuteness, and a whole bunch of inspiration. Not to mention this delicious recipe...

The minute I saw that there was Peanut Butter AND Nutella in the same recipe, I pinned it, and then went out to get the ingredients to make up a batch. (and bring them to Sunday night bible group of course!) Because really, if the whole batch was laying around my house... yikes.

Here's what y'all need...

Nutella Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies       
                                                                                                                                              Julie Carson
1 stick butter (at room temperature)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp  vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Nutella for stuffing
White sugar for rolling

Start by beating together the butter and peanut butter in your mixer. Then add in the sugars and beat until fluffy. Now add the egg, vanilla & milk, and give it a good stir.

Mix together the dry ingredients in a seperate bowl, and then slowly add them to the mixer. Now stick that dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.

When the 30 minutes are up (if you've got any dough left from sneaking nibbles out of the fridge) Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350.

Scoop out heaping tablespoons of dough and roll them in a bowl of sugar. Then space them out on a parchment paper (or baking mat) lined cookie sheet. use your thumb to make a nice little pit and then fill it with Nutella... lots and lots of Nutella. Then stick another sugar-rolled ball of dough on top and press 'em down. Lick your fingers and repeat.

The amount of cookie dough consumed during this process may affect the number of cookies you end up with in the end... just saying. Also: 1 jar of Nutella + Spoon = Bliss. Not that I've ever done that. 

This recipe makes 18 large cookies... so feel free to double the recipe as needed. Grab some friends and a big glass of milk... and then another cookie.


  1. As soon as I saw this recipe this morning I called my grandma and set up a Cookie and Coffee afternoon. We just HAD to try these and they turned out fantastic! Absolutely YUMMY. I didn't see a cook time here but in our oven it was about thirteen minutes :) Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

  2. NO way!!! Ahhh, those sound amazing! Definitely going to have to try making them soon.
