Nutella & Peanut Butter cookies

Needed a pick-me-up sweet treat today & so did the children, so I found this recipe over on Simply Gourmet & thought as I had the ingredients these would be quick! These are also gluten free.

You will need:

260g peanut butter – I use smooth
55g white sugar
55g light brown muscovado sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Nutella
20g oatmeal

Preheat oven to 180°c
Line a baking sheet with grease proof baking parchment.

Blend peanut butter and sugars.
Add egg and vanilla. Blend until thoroughly mixed.

Stir in oatmeal.

With clean hands, I rolled the mixture into golf ball sized rounds, and placed on sheet. Pressing very slightly.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool. While still hot, make an indentation in the cookie with your thumb or the back of teaspoon to make a well/dip.

I then used teaspoon to dollop a blob of Nutella in the well/dip, or you could pipe it as the recipe in the link suggests. I am hopeless at this and my Nutella was too hard, so I spooned it in.
