Give the gift of…..
NUTELLAAA-ELLLAA -ELLAAA- ELLAAAA
For starters growing up, Nutella was basically a main food group in my household. Nutella became popular in the states more so around 10 years ago. Unless you had European parents who gave you this as a child, and introduced it to all your friends(ME), you didn’t know about it. Nutella was created in 1964, by a pastry chef who lived in Piedmont Italy. It was first created as a chocolate cream for patisseries to use. The inventor, Pietro Ferrero had a son who perfected it into a chocolate spread that we eat today! My mom used to give it to us with BREAD, croissants, crepes, crackers, fruit, or the best way in my opinion…..ON THE SPOON! I have so many childhood memories with Nutella, and the tradition Has moved down with my niece.
You can use Nutella to bake with. In my opinion honey, and peanut butter are a match made in heaven with this spread!!! Considering mothers day is next week, I am giving the gift of Nutella! My mom personally loves peanut butter & nutella, so I decided to make a cookie for her!! These cookies are so rich, chewy, and moist. They are perfect with a glass of milk, tea(my favorite), or in this case her favorite which is COFFEE! I tend to show my love through baking as a gift. Material objects are over rated! Of course I need my professional tester…… CARAMIA!
Nutella & Peanut Butter Cookies

Bake at 350°F for 8-12 minutes. 9. Let rest for 20 minutes, and ENJOY!!!! **I like big CHEWY cookies. These will spread and baking to a thin chewy cookie that are softball size. If you want to get a higher quantity, and like smaller cookies, you can make them a smaller scoop size just watch the baking time. It might take 2-3 minutes shorter in time since they are smaller. *** remember to bake just till the edges are golden brown, and a little on the top if you want them this chewy!! They carry over and cookie 3-5 minutes after taking them out od the oven as well!! PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS!!!!
