Peanut Butter Valentine's Treats

How yummy do these peanut butter cookies look?  They are an excellent treat to make {and share} for Valentine's Day. These cookies are easy to make, really cute, and totally delicious. Want to know how we made them?  We started out by making a basic peanut butter cookie recipe {from Canadian Living} that we found here.  Then, we added a little "Valentine's magic".  :-) 1)  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line a cookie sheet with Silpat or parchment paper. 2)  Beat together the following wet ingredients with an electric mixer:  1 cup softened butter, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 3/4 cup white sugar, and 1 cup of peanut butter.  Then, beat in 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth. 3)  In a separate bowl, whisk together the following dry ingredients:  2 1/2 cups flour, 1tsp baking soda, 1tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt. 4)  Mix wet and dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon until flour mixture is fully incorporated. 5)  Roll rounded tablespoons of batter into balls, place on a cookie sheet, and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. 6)  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes and let them cool for about two minutes.  Then, gently press heart shaped chocolate into the top of the cookies. 7)  Allow to cool completely before storing, as chocolate will melt slightly from the heat of the cookies. Enjoy... and Happy Valentine's Day!
