Do you ever have one of those days when you just need a cookie to help you get through it? If only cookies could make all my problems go away for good. Although problems don’t disappear while consuming these peanut butter nutella sandwich cookies it sure doesn’t hurt to enjoy a couple of these to make your day a little sweeter.
A classic peanut butter cookie gets paired with chocolate hazelnut spread Nutella and they are a match made in heaven. The recipe I used for the cookies originally called for shortening but by using butter the cookies flattened out and made them the perfect cookie to make into sandwiches. These cookies are soft and chewy but hard enough to spread nutella between. I hope you enjoy making these cookies as much as I did eating them :).
