2/3 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2- 2/3 cup flour

heaping 1/3 cup Nutella
1.  Cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

2.  In a seperate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add to the butter mixture and mix well.

3.   Place spoonfuls of the Nutella on the cookie dough.  Use a butter knife to lightly swirl the Nutella and cookie dough.  Don't overmix.  Place dough in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes to firm up the Nutella.
