This Stitcher's Gotta Eat!!! GF Peanut Butter, Nutella Filled Cookies

A long, long time ago (approximately 22 years ago)
In a galaxy far, far away (Altus, Oklahoma)
I learned to make the most wonderfully simple Peanut Butter Cookies.  
They only required 3 ingredients.
Peanut Butter,

They were the best tasting peanut butter cookies I had ever eaten. And for a family on a very, VERY tight budget,it was a treat we could afford. But now money is a bit more plentiful. Nutella has been incorporated to make it an extra BIG treat!!! And for those of you with that pesky gluten allergy, you can now eat a cookie without paying for it later with much pain!!


1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 to 3/4 cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread

Mix ingredients thoroughly.  Roll dough into 1" balls, or use a small cookie scoop and place each one in the well of a mini muffin tin. I use one 12 muffin tin and fill it twice, but if you have a 24 muffin tin you can bake the entire batch at once.   Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. While still hot, use a rounded measuring spoon and create a well in each baked cookie.

While still hot, fill with Nutella.  I use two spoons to scrape a heap into the not worry about smoothing it out...the heat of the warm cookie with flatten it out.  Although if you overfill, it WILL run over the sides LOL....not always a bad thing!! Once the cookies have cooled, use a small knife and remove each cookie from the muffin tin......these cookies are VERY SOFT while they are still be careful removing them from the muffin tin before they are cooled.

I like to refrigerate them before I eat them.....but they are VERY good and GOOEY if eaten warm with a tall glass of ice cold MILK!!!!
