Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

This year I feel like I've looked high and low for simple and easy Christmas cookie recipes.  I came across this one while blog hopping and thought it looked easy enough, plus I had the ingredients already.  Overall, I would give these cookies a 6.  I wasn't head over heels in love, but they were good.  Mine came out a little flat, and next time I may drizzle some chocolate or Nutella over the top.  Enjoy!

Soft Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

1/2 cup butter flavored shortening 
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
3 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place sheets of foil on countertop for cooling cookies.

Combine shortening, Nutella, peanut butter, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add egg. Beat just until blended.

Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix just until blended.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (using a cookie scoop works great) 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly in crisscross pattern with tines of fork.

Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.
