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,
Sugar,
Egg.


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!!



GF PEANUT BUTTER, NUTELLA FILLED COOKIES

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 well.....do 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 warm...so 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!!!!

ENJOY!!!
