Happy Valentine’s Day, all! I hope this day of love (and greeting cards, chocolates, and roses) has been nothing but lovely to you all. Tell someone you love them today, shout it from the rooftop if you please. Also consider making these cookies because they are sparkly and delicious.
Valentine’s Peanut Butter Hug Cookies Print Recipe Here
From Life Is Sweet
Makes 24 cookies
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pink or Red & Yellow Food Coloring
Pink or Red sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 375. Add the butter, shortening, and peanut butter to a mixing bowl. Cream together. Add the sugars, egg, and milk and mix until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix until combined. Add your food coloring until you achieve the color you want. I would recommend adding a little food coloring, mixing, and then adding more if necessary until you are happy with the hue.
Roll the dough into 1 1/2 – 2 inch balls and roll in sprinkles and place on an ungreased cookie sheet a few inches apart from each other. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove from the oven and place a Hug in the center of each cookie. Let the cookies cool completely to allow the Hug to harden up again. Enjoy!
Have a happy Valentine’s evening! I’m off to enjoy a nice dinner and movie at home with my Joshua. 🙂
