I made these cookies for my peanut butter loving husband and he devoured them. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and drizzled the cookies with peanut butter. They were too cute!

I made a big batch of these for my Dad for fathers day and they were perfect! I used strawberry jelly. I'm definitely keeping this recipe. Thank you!
