Cakery Friday: Peanut Butter and Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

I am a sucker for Nutella, it’s just SO good! I am also a sucker for easy desserts. Don’t get me wrong, I ¬†love the challenge of a complicated dessert. But there is really something to be said for cookies you can prepare from beginning to end in under 20 minutes {seriously}. These thumbprint cookies are super simple and super delicious! Oh and p.s. these suckers are gluten free!


Gather all of the ingredients.


In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of creamy peanut butter, 1 large egg beaten, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix until well combined.



Measure out cookies, approximately 1 tablespoon each, and roll them into small balls. Press down gently on them to flatten. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes.


Carefully remove the cookies from the oven and using a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon, gently press down in the middle of each cookie creating the “thumbprint”. Fill each hole with a small spoonful of Nutella. Place back in the oven and bake for another 2-4 minutes.



Enjoy these cookies however you want!


Happy Baking!
