Peanut Butter Dove Cookies

I've always liked Peanut Butter Cookies with a Hershey's Kiss on top. Two of my favorite flavors in one cookie, what could be better? I'll tell you what is better--a peanut butter cookie topped with a Dove Heart. The Dove Heart just melts in your mouth! Delish. Good-bye Hershey's Kiss, hello Dove Heart!
What a great way to say "I Love You"!

Peanut Butter Dove Cookies
1 square butter, softened
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
coarse sugar for rolling
1 package Dove Milk Chocolate Hearts, I'm sure dark chocolate would be yummy also
Beat butter, peanut butter and sugars until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beat another minute. Turn mixer on low, add flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or longer.
I used a small Pampered Chef Scoop and made a ball then rolled it in coarse sugar. Place 12 cookies on a parchment lined sheet. Bake in a 375 oven for 10 minutes or until cookie starts to crack and is set. Remove from oven and press an unwrapped heart into cookie. Cool cookies quickly so the chocolate retains it's heart shape. It was 8 degrees so my cookies cooled quickly outside.
Enjoy a yummy Valentine treat.
