Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

We made these cookies for the Chemistry Department Picnic the other weekend. Before you get your hopes up, know they're not as good as they sound. I think it's a great idea, but there were a few flaws with the recipe. The peanut butter cookie dough turned out cookies that were too dry. So, use your favorite moist peanut butter cookie recipe. Also, the way the recipe described swirling the nutella made it loose the wonderful distinctive flavor. A guy in my lab had no idea they even had nutella in them. He thought it was just chocolate. This still has potential and I think I'll be making them again sometime, but in a different form. I'll probably put a little puddle of nutella in the center instead, kind of like a peanut butter blossom cookie.

Kyle did absolutely love the dough though! It was his favorite snack for about a week. So, if you're a dough person, this one's for you!
