Peanut Butter/Nutella cookies

I am not a fan of peanut butter, or chocolate...but the kids are so I made these and I love them! I am glad I tried these and will make them again!

1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup Nutella**I will probably use a little more next time**

Combine butter, peanut butter, egg, vanilla and sugars and mix until well blended.  Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix.  Add the Nutella and swirl it through the dough with a butter knife.  Chill dough for 15 minutes. Roll into balls and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  Using a fork, press lightly on the cookies to flatten a little. Bake at 350 degrees until edges are browned(8 minutes).  Allow to cool 2 minutes on a cookie sheet before transferring to a rack. Enjoy~
