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.
