Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies

My father makes fantastic Linzer cookies. With fresh raspberry preserves in tow, he fills perfectly baked and flower-shaped cookies. Though I love being traditional, I thought it time to switch it up. Many an Italian loves Nutella and many an American loves peanut butter and there isn't anyone who doesn't love a good sandwich cookie. Well, what do happens when it all comes together? Bliss.

Bad day? Have one of these bad boys, perfect for chocoholics and peanut butter lovers alike. These cookies will even keep peace amongst enemies; they're so distractingly delightful.

20 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dry roasted peanuts

Directions

To start, make a classic chocolate cookie like this recipe. If necessary, double your batch since these call for 2 cookies for 1 sandwich. Always add a small hole in the center of the top cookie so guests can see what they're getting themselves into when they grab one. 

For the filling, gather the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Beat the butter, peanut butter, Nutella, and vanilla until fluffy. Slowly add ½ of the confectioners' sugar and afterward, add ¼ cup of the cream. Add the remaining confectioners' sugar and beat until well-blended. If needed, add more cream if necessary for preferable consistency. Lastly, fold in the dry roasted peanuts. Coat the bottom half of the chocolate cookie with about 1 tablespoon of the fillng. Cover it with the top cookie and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
