Valentine's Blossom Cookies

These cookies aren't just for Christmas time.  Especially when Dove is nice enough to come out with heart shaped chocolates for Valentine's day.








Valentine's Blossom Cookies


1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar (for rolling)
Dove heart shaped chocolates ~ milk or dark chocolate

Cream together butter, peanut butter and sugars.  Stir in egg and vanilla.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.  Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for 4 hours.

Scoop and shape dough into 1" balls and roll in sugar.  Bake at 325
° for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from oven and place a Dove chocolate in the middle.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
