PB & Jelly Hearts

As some of you know, my little one is a PB&J lover. I made these for her. She has my heart.
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c butter (room temp)
1 c peanut butter
1 egg
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
jam of your choice (we used grape)
Preheat oven to 350ยบ
Whisk dry ingredients together in bowl and set aside. In mixer beat soft butter and sugar on medium until pale and fluffy. Beat in peanut butter then eggs. Reduce speed to low and beat in your dry ingredients until dough forms. If dough is sticky - refrigerate 5-10 minutes.
Roll dough into 1 1/2 " balls. Arrange on parchment lined cookie sheets, spacing 1 1/2" apart. Press into 1 3/4" rounds. Press thumbs into centers, creating hearts. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven and reshape any hearts that need it. Fill indentions with generous 1/2 tsp of jam of your choice - fill heart up.
Bake until firm, 6-7 minutes more. Super good!!

Makes about 2 dz cookies
