Do you make Valentine’s Day cookies? How many do you make for each person? Several years ago, I started making big cookies … one for each person. My guys have always been impressed by big food … pancakes that are big as the plate, huge lollipops (like the one’s from amusement parks), huge baked potatoes, double or triple burgers and jumbo cookies. Today’s cookie is a big version of yesterday’s recipe … Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. I went big … not just in size … more peanut butter and chocolate, by adding a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup! These are my Jumbo Valentine Cookies!
I used the same idea as Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies … baked the cookie, then inserted the Peanut Butter Cup. The chocolate melted slightly … the heart sprinkle/decoration stuck!
The paper cups made baking these cookies especially easy, plus they are red with white polka dots … love polka dots … found them at Home Goods, but I’ve seen them at other stores too. The size is 4″ x 1-1/8″ … a mini pot pie pan would be a good substitute.
This is how you do it … make the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie dough from yesterday’s post. Put enough dough in the cups to fill them about half way … flatten with a glass dipped in sugar. The recipe makes 10-12 jumbo cookies.
Bake in a 375°F oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. While the cookies are baking, remove Snack Size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups from their wrappers. Remove cookies from oven and insert the PB cups immediately, add a cute heart when the chocolate is slightly melted!
Yesterday I shared a bit about my day … a bit of a Murphy’s Law kind of day … it continued after I published the recipe from the auto repair shop waiting room! The car battery was tested three times (it was fine), oil was changed and I was sent on my way … decided to stop and do a little shopping … ready to move on to the next stop and car won’t start! Called the hubby, he was 1-1/2 hours away … called for roadside assistance … help would arrive in 45 minutes … roadside assistance called me … had to find new help … please wait another 45 minutes … hubby got home, picked up jumper cables and came to rescue me from a two-hour wait in a parking lot … called roadside assistance and said, never mind! Sorry for the rambling … done now! I think The Peanut Butter Man earned some cookies today 😉
