Nutella-Swirled Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

For some reason, I expected these to be like a PB Blondie.  They aren't, though; they are a delicious, shortbread-like textured, melt-in-your-mouth PB cookie bar topped with Nutella.  They were very good and hard to stop eating.  Also, quite simple to make.  Everyone loved them.

Nutella-Swirled Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

    ½ cup butter, softened
    ½ cup peanut butter
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup flour
    ⅓ cup Nutella

    1.  Cream butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar.  Add egg and vanilla, and mix well.  Add flour and mix until just combined.  Press mixture into an 8x8 pan.  Drop Nutella in spoonfuls on top of dough. Use a knife to lightly swirl the Nutella into the dough.

    2.  Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely before cutting into 9 bars.
