3/4 cup Peanut Butter (Smooth)
1/2 cup Butter (Softened)
1 tbs Vanilla Extract
1 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Soda

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl combine egg, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, and vanilla; beat until creamy and fluffy.
  2. Add the flour and baking soda and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Scoop into tablespoon sized balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Chill cookie dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  5. While cookie dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350°F. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Unwrap chocolate hearts and gently press into the center of each cookie immediately after removing from the oven. 
  7. Place in the fridge or freezer to prevent chocolate from melting.

Note: You can use pre-wrapped chocolates or you can make your own by using a mold, melting chocolate, and freezing it. I bought mine because it saved a lot of time and energy. :)
