One recent Saturday afternoon it was pouring rain outside and we were looking for something to do. Cole suggested we make peanut butter cookies. So Cole and I were all set to make The Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies Ever until we opened the jar of peanut butter and found that it was almost empty. Now what? I thought of the almond butter in the fridge, and that might have worked, but then I remembered we had Nutella. The Nutella won out. So we used what was left of the peanut butter and combined it with Nutella so we’d have enough to make cookies. I cut down on the sugar because Nutella is much sweeter than peanut butter. This made the dough a little wetter and harder to roll, so I just dropped them in spoonfuls on the cookie sheet instead. I wasn’t sure how they’d turn out but figured it was worth a try and there wasn’t much else to do that day (well, nothing fun anyway). Luckily they were a success. Cole said he liked them even better than the regular peanut butter cookies. They turned out a bit thinner and crispier that the ones with just peanut butter, but very tasty. Really, how could anything with peanut butter and nutella taste bad?
