Some people love Nutella the way that I love peanut butter cookies. I don't feel that way about Nutella. Really, I could take it or leave it. But I had some left over from another baking adventure, and I thought I could improve on Nutella by combining it with my peanut butter cookie recipe.
They turned out pretty good. They tasted a little bit like hazelnut brownie cookies. Which I don't hate.

Nutella Brownie Cookies
(adapted from Paula Deen's Peanut Butter Cookies)
1 large egg
1 cup Nutella
1/2 cup flour (the Nutella is more liquid-y than peanut butter, so I had to add flour)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients until dough forms. Drop by spoonful onto parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from sheet and allow to cool.
