Peanut Butter Nutella Crinkles


Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can finally focus on Christmas. I don’t like to see or hear anything Christmasy until Black Friday. I was sad I couldn’t bake to celebrate December 1 because I was stuck in Ohio for work until Friday night. On Saturday, I sat down with my million cookie books and couldn’t figure out what I wanted. Then I remembered – the night before my trip, I got the latest Cooking Club magazine and saw a recipe for Peanut Butter Nutella Crinkles.

I had both spreads in the pantry, so I knew what I was making :D Turns out I ate more Nutella than I thought, so I didn’t get the full 3/4 cup. Maybe 1/2 cup plus a tablespoon or two.

These cookies do need to freeze for 20 minutes before baking. BTW, who designs a freezer that is not deep enough for a cookie tray?? I had to play building blocks with Hot Pockets and meatballs for 10 minutes because the shelves on the door were in the way. When that failed, I took the one shelf off (which took another 5 minutes just to put back on). Obviously the designer was not a baker.

The texture is soft and moist in the middle. When I took them out of the oven, they felt too soft, so I put them back in. They do come together after cooling. The recipe says 3 1/2 dozen, but because I used my 2-inch cookie scoop, I got 2 dozen.
