Packed with great peanut butter taste, these peanut butter cookies are sure to please!
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted (microwave for 25 seconds)
½ cup smooth peanut butter
1 large egg
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sized mixing bowl add sugar, brown sugar, & melted butter, stir until creamy. Add peanut butter, egg, & vanilla, stir until smooth & creamy. Add flour & baking soda & stir until well combined.
Scoop or roll dough into 1½ inch balls & place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each ball using the bottom of a glass (coated in sugar). To make the top of the heart use a butter knife or the handle of fork to cut into the top center of dough. Press it outwards to the right & left to make the “V” shape. Use your thumb & index finger to pinch the bottom of the dough to make the bottom “V” shape of the heart. You can use your hands to perfect the heart shape if needed. Take a fork & press the dough down on each side making a criss-cross on the heart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
