Reese's Valentine Day Cookies

If I could choose one candy to eat for the rest of my life, it would for sure be Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  Pair that with a peanut butter cookie?  I'm yours.  I saw these last year over on I Heart Naptime and made then right away.  Well I made them again today, and they are delish. One thing the recipe doesn't mention though...wait a minute or a few before putting the peanut butter heart on the cookie.  I had quite a few hearts melt the first time I made these. 
Reese's Peanut Butter Valentine Cookies
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar for rolling dough in
  • 1 package reese's peanut butter cups
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, stir peanut butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Place 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then roll into sugar. Place the balls 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Place reese's peanut butter cup on top of the cookies after you remove them from the oven.

Valentine's Day Treats...

I have been back to pinning a lot now that I am on maternity leave and I have seen so many cute ideas for Valentines Day.  Because of this I thought I would bring back one of my posts from last year that seems to be getting a lot of attention on Pinterest this year.  These are all really cute and really easy ideas for your Valentine's Day party or just because.  In fact, Jack and I will be making the peanut butter hearts today, those are one of my all time favs.  So enjoy! 

P.s.  I also had to add a little pic of my little sleeping beauty....I can't believe that she is almost 2 months already!!!!

Please Welcome...

Anya Everly. 
Born December 20, 2013. 6 lbs. 12 oz, 20inches of perfectness. 
 She was the best Christmas present we could have asked for.  We even had her newborn pictures done already, and I am in love with them.
I was very worried how Jack was going to be.  I was worried about how he would feel, if he would be mean to her , or us, and if he would feel left out.  So far he is doing such a great job as a big brother....
I hope to be back blogging more now.  I thought about quitting and I know I took a long break, but I really wanted to keep it up, if only for me.   I hope you all had a good holiday and new year, and I hope you all didn't forget about me.
