Peanut Butter Hearts

You know the peanut butter blossoms that I made at Christmas.  The ones with the Hershey kiss in the middle??  Well, we are going to get funky and put a heart shaped Dove in the middle for Valentine's Day!!  These are such an easy cookie and they are sure to put a smile on someone's face.

Unwrap a bag of Dove Hearts so they are ready to go.

1/2 C Butter softened
1 Egg
1/2 C Peanut Butter
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar

Cream together. And then add...

1 1/2 C Flour
1/4 t Salt
3/4 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Baking Powder

Roll into small balls about the size of a medium gum ball. That is bigger than the ones that cost a penny and smaller than the quarter size. Basically you are going to have a bite size cookie when it cooks.

Roll in sugar. Put on pan and bake at 375 for about 7 minutes until bottom is lightly browned.

Immediately put on waxed paper and immediately push a Dove Heart in the center. You are not going to be able to move these for at least two hours because the heart will soften a bit. They need to completely cool before you package these.

These freeze well
