Pastor Alaska has a word that he says when things are beyond ridiculous. He says ri-DONK-ulous. These cookies are in the realm of the ri-DONK-ulous… beyond ridiculously good. There’s just no better way to say it.

These really aren’t as complicated as they may seem. Press your thumbprint into the peanut butter cookie dough, fill it with a dollop of Nutella, then lay another layer of peanut butter cookie dough on top. Flatten with a fork. Bake. It all cooks together beautifully into one large, ooey-gooey, have-to-get-a-cold-glass-of-milk-immediately cookie. Completely addicting and utterly fabulous. Try them.

Yield: 12 large cookies

Adapted from Joy's Hope

Ingredients

  • 1/2c butter, softened
  • 1/2c brown sugar, packed
  • 2/3c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1c peanut butter
  • 1T milk
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1-1/4c flour
  • 3/4t baking soda
  • 1/2t baking powder
  • 1/4t salt
  • Sugar for rolling
  • Nutella for stuffing, about 12 teaspoons

Instructions

  1. Prepare two large baking sheets with a silicone mat (recommended) or cooking spray.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and beat until smooth. Incorporate peanut butter, milk, and vanilla.
  3. Sift in dry ingredients and mix until completely combined. Refrigerate dough 30-45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, roll dough into 24 uniform balls. Roll balls in sugar.
  6. Place the first dozen balls on prepared cookie sheets, 6 per sheet (they will spread). Place a thumbprint in each cookie. Using a teaspoon, scoop Nutella into each cookie, using your finger to scrape it carefully into the indentation.
  7. Lightly flatten the remaining dozen balls of dough and place them over top of Nutella, like a blanket, covering the Nutella completely. Taking a large fork, lightly flatten cookies until they are more flat on top, rather than mounded, being careful not to press too hard and cause the Nutella to ooze out.
  8. Bake 14-15 minutes until cookies began to turn golden on the edges, but still look slightly unset in the middle. Allow to cool 15 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Cookies will be large.

Notes

Although I almost always prefer my cookies hot from the oven or warm, I preferred these at room temperature. The cookies are more fragile when warm, but firm up nicely when cool. Try them both ways and see how you like them.

I just made these, but I used Jif's mocha cappucino hazlenut spread instead of Nutella.  Delicious!

I have to find a converter for the measures because as I'm in Portugal, they are not the same... :(

I made them smaller (about half a tablespoon per ball) - it made 46 regular-sized cookies. Perfect!

Awesome combination...I am sure to love the dollop of Nutella in the center. Thanks for the recipe!

"cream" is a method of combining butter and sugar until smooth traditionally using the back of a wooden spoon.

Kittykat is correct. Creaming together the butter and sugar means to combine them thoroughly until creamy (in this recipe, with a mixer). I have added the word "together" in the recipe instructions to help avoid any further confusion. Thank you for your question! Hope you enjoy the cookies.
