Weekend Baking: Chocolate Chip Peanut-ella Cookies


My Mom always tells me that I should have been born in the 60's.

Mostly because of my slightly dated taste in music and I would agree with her except Nutella wasn't widely available back then and I couldn't live like that. 


These cookies were really supposed to be plain peanut butter (for my friend Marife, they're her fave) but, I didn't have enough so I threw in some nutella.

If you're a chewy cookie lover, these are for you.

Happy Weekend!


CHOCOLATE CHIP PEANUT-ELLA COOKIES
Adapted generously from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook via Smitten Kitchen

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter*
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Sift your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside. Beat together your butter, peanut butter, Nutella and both sugars until light and fluffy. Mix in your vanilla and egg. Fold in the flour mixture and chocolate chips then, chill your cookie dough until it's firm enough to roll into even portions. Bake your cookies at 325F for around 10 or 12 minutes. They'll be a little delicate right out of the oven so wait two or three minutes before transferring your cookies to a cooling rack.

*I used the smooth kind but I'm sure chunky peanut butter would work just as well
