Church Potluck Recipe: Dove Love Cookies






Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and anyone would appreciate these sweet little cookies.




“Dove” Love Cookies


Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cup pastry wheat flour
1/2 cup ground golden flax seed
1 package Dove heart shaped chocolate pieces


Directions:

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream softened butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.

Step 2: Add peanut butter to butter mixture and mix well.

Step 3: Add pastry wheat flour, flax and all purpose flour, salt and baking soda and slowly mix until all combined.

Step 4: Using a cookie scoop put cookie dough 2 inches apart or 12 balls to a cookie sheet. Pat the center of each ball down with the back of the scooper, sprinkle with sugar if you’d like and bake for about 11 min. at 350 degrees.

Step 5: While cookies are baking un-wrap the chocolate. When the cookies are done immediately put chocolate hearts in the middle of each cookie and gently press down. Cool on cookie sheet 5-10 min. then transfer to a cooling rack. Be careful to let the chocolate hearts harden before storing cookies otherwise the chocolate will get smeared.
