Happy World Nutella Day! In honor of the event, I spent part of the evening baking a batch of Nutella cookies. I used the classic Joy of Cooking peanut butter cookie recipe and replaced the peanut butter with Nutella. They're light and buttery, with a gentle Nutella flavor. I would have prefered a stronger flavor - perhaps Nutella brownies would have been the way to go! Half the cookies are topped with chopped, toasted hazelnuts, the other half are plain - they're good either way.
(The flash warms the cookies' color to more that of peanut butter cookies - in fact, they're more of a Nutella-esque brown.)
