Peanut Butter Nutella Thumbprint Cookies & a Silpat Giveaway!

 So to keep the cookie love going this week I just couldn’t resist baking something with my two favorite things in the whole wide world.


…And I don’t mean finding my favorite boots on sale at Jcrew this week (because I did!! Sorry credit card…)

…Not even the second season of Homeland. Obsessed.

….OR my car seat warmers…when its 10 degrees in Chicago (gasp!).. combined!


I’m talking Peanut Butter.

And Nutella.


These little dreamboats are addicting! Soft fluffy peanut butter cookies with creamy Nutella centers…Mmm.. mm! Plus they’re easy. Stupid easy. Just the way I like it :)

And… to really keep the cookie love going…!

  12. Yup, peanut butter and Nutella are two of my most favorite things. :)

  13. Hey Kristina :)
    Going to bake this tomorrow, sooo excited about them. <3
    Was wondering what the purpose is for the whole wheat white flour. Is it alright if I just use just all-purpose flour and no whole wheat white flour instead?

    • Whipped Baking says:

      Hi Katrina! You can definitely sub in all-purpose, the reason for using half whole wheat is to bump up the nutrition profile a little (more fiber, lower glycemic index). Will be just as great with only all-purpose :) Happy baking!!
