Fluffernutter Cookies

For the past week or so, I’ve been meaning to make some cookies but just haven’t had the initiative to start baking.  I sucked it up and bought a roll of peanut butter cookie dough to kick-start my baking mood today.  I used a camera Keith bought me yesterday for the pictures!

I ended up making some cookies with marshmallow fluff inspired by the fluffernutter sandwich I had for lunch.

Here’s what I did:
I took the prepared cookie dough and rolled it into little balls and placed them a couple of inches apart on a cookie sheet.   I used a heaping tablespoon to get a nice sized cookie.

Once they were all placed on the sheet, I made an indentation in the middle of the cookie.  Some recipes call for you to make the indentation with your fingertip, but I made mine with a knuckle so I wouldn’t get TOO much dough under my nails!

Then I popped the cookie sheet in a 350*F (175*C) oven for about 15 minutes.  Right after you take the cookies out of the oven, re-make the indentation in the warm cookies. The dough was very hot, so I made the dents with the back of a teaspoon.

Then, I filled the little dents with Fluff.  I added it while the dough was still warm and I think that helped me out a little by softening it and making it drop from the spoon a little easier.

I didn’t want to fill ALL of the cookies with Fluff, so I filled a few with Nutella and I really can’t decide which one I like better!
