Tasty Tuesday: Nutella Swirl Peanut Butter Cookies

I have two things to tell you.  First, these cookies are dangerous.  Second, I had to get a new camera because mine died for no apparent reason, but I am secretly pleased because I love, love, love how my pictures are coming out.

Like practically everything in my post-2011 life, I found these cookies on Pinterest.  I found them, I pinned them, I made them, and then I ate way too many of them.  I hate it when that happens.

But you know what I love?  I love when a recipe works perfectly so that I don’t have to recommend tweaks and re-write the whole recipe here on my blog.  This one was absolutely parfait, so let me direct you to the full recipe right here.

Of course, you know I love play-by-play, so here’s the details to help you along the way. (I didn’t realize that this line rhymed until I was proofing the post.  And then I left it anyway because I’m cool like that.)

First up for this recipe, you combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and an egg.


You mix those items until they are super smooth and creamy, then add in flour, baking soda and salt. The dough will be a little rough, but it will work.  Next, you “drizzle” nutella over the top…


…then spread it through the doug using a butter knife to swirl it.


The.dough.was.so.good.  I kind of didn’t want to bake it.  But after chilling it for 15 minutes, I rolled the dough into balls and flattened them with the tines of a fork.


Seriously.  How rad are the pictures from my new camera?

I don’t blame you if you head to your kitchen right this minute.  It’s worth it.

    Your photos look great, Erin! Yes, share what kind of camera you got! I’m in the market for a new one. And, those cookies look delicious. Anything with peanut butter is a hit with me.

    Thanks everyone! I ended up getting the Canon Rebel T3. It is my first DSLR and I really have no idea how to use it, but it takes pretty good pictures straight out of the box!

    Those look amazing. It seems like they would be perfect to freeze pre-baked…then when I want a little post-dinner sweet I could bake off 1 (or 5, might be more realistic) so I don’t eat the whole batch.
