almond butter nutella swirl cookies

This has been such a busy week, I can't believe I haven't written a post since Monday!

We have had beautiful 70 degree weather here all week.  The boys and I have been dreaming of what to plant in our garden.  My youngest wants tomatoes and eggplant and my oldest wants jellybeans and cotton candy. :)

I think my oldest has a sweet tooth like his Mama!

So what have I made to satisfy my sweets cravings this week?

Almond Butter Nutella Swirl Cookies
adapted from Delightful Bitefuls

1/2 c. unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 c. smooth almond butter
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 farm fresh egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4  tsp. salt
13/4 c. flour
1/2 c. Nutella

Mix first 8 ingredients until smooth and fluffy.  Slowly sift in flour until well incorporated.  Stir in the Nutella just until you have a pretty swirl pattern.

Refrigerate dough for about 15-20 minutes. Then scoop out small dough balls onto lined cookie sheet and bake in 350 degree oven for about 7 minutes.

  1. Wow! These look SO GOOD. Almond butter. Nutella?
    I have no reason to make them, but I might just have to. Because I have an unopened jar of nutella in my cabinet!

  2. Never used almond butter. Wonderful combination of ingredients, looks very yummy.

  3. Picked up the almond butter - dough is chilling! I'm so excited about these! YUM!

  4. These look delicious. I have a jar of nutella I can put to good use for these but where do you get almond butter and what's a reasonable price for it? Thanks!

  5. Yum-o. I love almond butter and I love cookies, so here we go--must try this one. We made some oat-flour chocolate chip cookies today, and I over indulged a bit. Aren't cookies wonderful? :)

  6. Oooh these sound lovely. Hmmmm. I've never been any good at making cookies but maybe I'll have to give these a try.

  7. Oh goodness, I saw nutella and knew I would be bookmarking this immediately. These look great!

  8. Oh my. I love Nutella and these sound awesome!

  9. These sound absolutely wonderful and I know my family will love them! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  10. I'm sorry my friend, but I can't read your blog anymore. I'm gaining wait just looking at the pictures! Especially since I just virtually ate every cookie in the above photo. :)

  11. omg these look great, I love Nutella, too!

    I am stopping by from Sumo's Market Yourself Monday, I would love if you stopped by and checked out my project :)

  12. Oh my! I am in love with nutella lately and now I have another recipe to make with it, I can't wait!!

  13. These sound sinful! I have a little one that loves Nutella so I may give these a go. Thank you for sharing

  14. Amelia, I made these cookies tonight and OMG, I love these! I've made many, many cookies and these are one of the best I've made this year. Maybe the best out of all of last year too, lol. I'm writing these up on my blog and referring back to yours so people can get the recipe. Thanks so much for posting this.

  15. I made these and they turned out amazing. Everyone loved them, thanks so much for posting.

  16. was that supposed to be 1-3/4 cup flour or 3/4?

  17. just made these!!
    i used chunky almond butter instead of smooth and could be the reason why my batter was too dry and crumbly
    i ended up scooping it into my hands and using my body heat to roll into balls
    maybe i could use a splash of almond milk to help out next time...
    either way, AMAZING! super super yummy.
    thanks for sharing!
