Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies filled with Nutella
Tender, chewy peanut butter cookies filled with sweet, creamy Nutella, who can resist!    
You won't keep these on the plate long. That beautiful but sneaky hand belongs to our little friend Sally, she is as sweet as the cookies!
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup flour
1 jar Nutella
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and peanut butter. 
Add the sugars, egg and vanilla.
Mix in the salt, baking soda and flour.
 Drop by teaspoonful onto cookie sheets and lightly press with a floured fork in a criss-cross design.
Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes or until barely beginning to turn golden around the edges.
Cool on rack.
When completely cool, spread half the cookies with 1-2 teaspoons Nutella, top with the other half. 
Makes about 25-30 cookies depending on size.
As you can see these aren't just for the little kiddos, Leah , my photographer-daughter was caught in the act!


  1. They look yummy, I think I might have to try them very soon, like tomorrow.

  2. So easy, watch out though--B is a scavenger!

  3. Who indeed? Peanut butter cookies top my list & adding Nutella? That is sheer genius!

  4. I don't know about genius, I made peanut butter cookies and was rummaging for something to fill them with when the jar of Nutella almost fell out of the cupboard, you might say "it jumped out at me". :)
