Notes about cookies:

  • Creamy or crunchy peanut butter can be used. But, regular peanut butter will work better. A natural peanut butter has more oil and may effect the texture of your cookies.
  • If you can’t find Nutella, any brand of chocolate hazelnut spread will work. You can find them in the same aisle as the peanut butter at your grocery store.
  • After mixing the dough, store it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before baking. This will help firm up the dough and make it easier to work with. You can store it longer or even over night, if needed.
  • Make sure your butter is softened before mixing!
