How to make peanut-butter-and-chocolate heart cookies


For someone who enjoys half of her toast with Nutella and the other half with peanut butter, every bite into this crunchy cookie ensures that you’ve got the best of both worlds. And it really is essentially a cookie within another cookie, particularly with the fact that you work on two different doughs almost concurrently, and you get to switch the cutout pieces around!

Mix chocolate dough: 1. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla extract and melted chocolate. 2. In another bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. 3. Add flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and beat until combined. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Mix peanut butter dough: 1. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugar. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla extract. 2. In another bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. 3. Add flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture and beat until combined. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Assembling: 1. Roll out doughs to about 1/2 inch thick and use a large cookie cutter to cut the large shapes. 2. Use a smaller cookie cutter to remove the centers and switch them, creating a two-toned effect. 3. Bake at 350F for 12-13mins, until the edges of the peanut butter cookies are golden brown.

    I'm looking for a cut-out cookie recipe for a beginner baker. Yours looks very good and seems quite easy to follow. Will find time to try it this week. :)

    Hi Ovenhaven, I had a go at making these yesterday for Valentine's Day - I adapted your recipe as I don't like peanut butter. Thanks for the inspiration, I'll definitely be making these again!
