Ingredients
  

Refrigerated

  • 1 egg, large

Dairy

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

Baking, Spices & Condiments

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar, granulated extra to roll the cookies in before baking
  • 1/2 cup sugar, powdered
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
  • 1 cup Nutella

Instructions
 

  • Make the filling.
    In a bowl, combine Nutella and powdered sugar, then mix together until smooth. Use a 1 inch scoop to make into balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place in freezer.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Make the cookies.
    In a bowl, combine peanut butter, butter and both granulated and brown sugar. Mix on medium speed until fully blended. Add the egg and vanilla extract, then mix until well blended. Add flour, baking soda and salt until combined. Don't over blend.
  • Scoop the cookie dough and flatten like a pancake. Roughly 2x2 inches. Place a frozen Nutella ball on top and fold the dough up to wrap around the frozen ball of Nutella. Make sure it's completely sealed by rolling it into a ball between your two palms. Add more cookie dough if needed to fully cover frozen ball.
  • Place granulated sugar in a small bowl, roll the stuffed cookie dough balls in the sugar and place on a cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until the cookies are golden, 12-15 minutes. (I use the back of a spoon to slightly push down the center of the cookie at the 10 minute mark). Eat up and Enjoy!
