Nutella Swirl Peanut Butter Cookies

i'm not a big peanut butter cookie fan. i won't kick one out of bed if it happens to crawl in- but i don't go out of my way to eat them.
the husband on the other hand, he invites them into his bed. then he rolls around with them. that's how much he loves them.
so i really made these for him & only a little bit for me (because hello, Nutella)

Nutella Swirl Peanut Butter Cookies (via domestic adventure via delightful bitefuls)
You Need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
Approx. 1/4 cup Nutella, i warm mine up for about 20 seconds in the microwave to make it flow

Directions: Preheat oven to 350°
Combine butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well blended.
Add flour, baking soda and salt. Drizzle Nutella on top of the dough then swirl it through the dough with a butter knife or spatula.

Chill dough 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Roll into balls by hand. Place on parchment or Silpat lined cookie sheet. Using a fork, press down the balls to flatten slightly. Bake until edges are very lightly browned (about 7 to 10 minutes).
Allow to rest 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring cookies to a cooling rack.

quickly take some pictures & then allow your husband & children to channel their inner vulture.
p.s. these were good- even to a non- pb cookie loving girl
