|Nutella Peach Cookies|
In these cookies, I used peach puree since I had some from when I went peach picking, but any fruit puree can be used like mango or applesauce. This yield a slight fruity taste and lighter cookie.
Sorry for no step by step photos today...had a few memory card isssues :(
Nutella Peach Cookies(click here for printable recipe)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup peach puree (1-2 peaches peeled, pitted and pureed in blender)
1/2 cup Nutella
1 egg (you can also add another 1/4 cup of peach puree if you would prefer to omit the use of egg)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Using an electric mixer, blend butter, both sugars, peach puree, Nutella, egg and vanilla until thoroughly combined.
Sift all the other dry ingredients into a bowl. Add this to the wet mix and mix until well combined.
Shape into one big fat log or 2 smaller logs and wrap in plastic wrap.
Put in refrigerator overnight.
Preheat oven to 375 F.
On a lightly floured board, place unwrapped log and cut into thin slices. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Let the cookies set for 5 minutes before removing them.
My one big log yielded these yummy cookies that go perfect with a glass of milk. The peach flavor is gentle, in the background but adds a lightness to the cookies, both in texture and taste.
