Valentine Cookie Heart Recipe
Makes 12 Servings

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or butterscotch pieces
  • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup red, pink and white candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and peanut butter on medium speed for about 1 minute. Beat in the brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla. On low speed, gradually beat in the flour. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Draw a heart (about 11 inches by 9 inches) on a piece of parchment paper; turn the paper over and place the paper on a large cookie sheet. Pat out the dough into a heart shape. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
  3. Remove the heart from the oven and spinkle with the chocolate and peanut butter or butterscotch pieces. Let stand for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the pieces have softened. Using an offset spatula, spread the softened pieces over the cookie crust. Top with marshmallows and candy-coated pieces. Bake for about 5 minutes more or just until the marshmallows are slightly golden. Cool on a cookie sheet on a wire rack.
