I’ve spent so much time thinking about and cooking Fall and Thanksgiving recipes, I did not even notice that the Christmas season was slowly creeping up on all of us! Don’t you feel like you have to urgently switch gears now and get yourself into a Christmas mode? I do! And, conveniently, these peanut butter sandwich cookies with Nutella filling and colorful sprinkles seem like a perfect way to kick of a Christmas cookie season around here! 🙂 I love Christmas for many reasons, not the least of which are the cookies! You have to check out the Christmas cookies I’ve made last year – they all became my family’s favorites!
Here, I am using a recipe from a wonderful Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. I’ve already made these cookies before, and this time instead of making a chocolate filling from scratch, I am taking a shortcut and using Nutella spread. Cookies did not suffer a bit – Nutella is delicious with these crumbly, light-textured, melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies! Dress them up with sprinkles, and they become perfect, easy-to-make Christmas treats!
