Valentines Peanut Butter Cookies

Valentines Peanut Butter Cookies

I got bowed down to over these cookies.

Seriously, like on knees and arms waving up and down to the floor…the whole shebang.

Now keep in mind, I do bring all my baked goods to work for my co-workers to indulge on.

And these simple Peanut Butter Cookies is what I get such praises for?

I’ll take it.

You see the peanut butter blossom cookies with the Hersheys Kiss in the middle all the time during Christmas.

Well, just swap out the kiss for a Dove Heart.

Valentines Peanut Butter Cookies

Viola, instant Valentines Day cookies that are obviously worth an big fat, “I’m not worthy” bow.

Valentines Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh, here is a big tip. Make sure you have several size Cookie/ice cream scoops on hand for your baking endeavors.
Using them insures all of your cookies, cupcakes etc. are all the same size.

I used this one…..1 1/2 tablespoon.
