PB Chocolate Heart Cookies

With Valentines Day right around the corner, this cookie is perfect to make for your loved one. Make a batch for dessert or package a few up in a goodie bag to send to work with your loved one. Either way they will be sure to thank you for this peanut butter chocolatey treat!


1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
30 Hersheys chocolate hearts or Hersheys Kisses, unwrapped

*Makes about 30 cookies



First mix together sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours.

When the dough is firm heat the oven to 375ºF. Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls. Place on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper (cookies won't stick and it makes cleanup easier). Gently flatten the cookie down with your hand instead of using a fork like other peanut butter cookie recipes call for.

Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately place a Hersheys chocolate heart in the center of each cookie and lightly press into the cookie. Cool 5 minutes and then remove from cookie sheet and let cool on wire rack. 

Be sure to sneak a few while they are cooling! You won't regret it :)
