Recipe: Salted Nutella Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies

Surprisingly, I was in the baking mood the other evening, and I kept going back to Cup of Jo's post on "11 Nutella Recipes." Considering it was a week night and I was looking at a 9pm start time, I opted for the Salted Nutella Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies, which seemed fairly easy for a rookie baker. They were so easy to make and delicious! Though, I do recommend eating with a tall glass of milk as the all natural peanut butter and Nutella combo will leave you smacking your lips. The sea salt was a tasty surprise ingredient and certainly, boy's favorite.  Enjoy! 


1 cup chunky natural peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup nutella
Course sea salt, optional
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*In large bowl, stir peanut butter together with sugar, egg and vanilla until combined. Scoop onto prepared baking sheet using a small cookie scoop. Bake 10 minutes, until cookies have slightly flattened and are not shiny. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes on baking sheet. 
*Press thumb into the center of the warm cookie or use the back of a utensil to create an indentation. Spoon in 1/2 teaspoon Nutella into hole and sprinkle with sea salt. 
*Recipe adapted from the Spiffy Cookie.
