Nutella, Peanut Butter Cookies

I always wondered what one would do with the big jars of Nutella sold in packages of two at Costco.
Now I know and I will purchase Nutella on my next Costco adventure. These cookies combine so many great flavors, they really were delicious.
My sweet 6 year old neighbor knocked on my door sporting a cute apron. This recipe was perfect, plenty of pouring, measuring and scooping with yummy results in no time. Baking cookies with a child will make you happy, I know.

Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies
1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix dry ingredients together and set aside
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup Nutella
Combine butter, peanut butter and sugars in bowl of mixer. Mix till well combined 2-3 minutes, add egg and vanilla, mix another minute. With mixer on low gradually add dry ingredients till just combined. Stir in Nutella.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes--I used the medium size Pampered Chef Scoop and got about 30 cookies.

Those look so nice...perfectly formed, etc. I have the only kids in the entire world who will not eat peanut butter. Blasphemy, I know. Nutella, on the other hand, is a staple here...Matt's favorite thing to do with it? Dip pretzels into it and eat. I am figuring those big jars of Nutella and bags of pretzels are going off to college next year: no refrigeration needed.

I have both Nutella and peanut butter from Costco in those big 2-packs. Will have to try this recipe to use them both - thanks.
