THRIVE Peanut Butter HEART Cookies {show some love}

I love cookies! Pretty much all cookies...  so it isn't any surprise that I am in love with these bad boys. We had family over for dinner yesterday and I knew just what I wanted to whip up for them - Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies... only I wanted to do a Valentines twist that I had seen on Pinterest. I adapted my favorite recipe (found on Pinterest here) for some THRIVE food storage staples that I love!

½ cup creamy peanut butter
4 Tbls. butter, room temperature
1 cup packed THRIVE brown sugar
2 Tbls THRIVE whole egg powder mixed with 2 Tbls. water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups THRIVE white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup granulated THRIVE white sugar, for rolling
1 bag of Dove hearts, unwrapped (or you can use the traditional kisses) I used 18 hearts for my cookies, but I made them bigger :) {The rest of the bag will be added to my chocolate stash}
1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line Cookie sheets with Parchment Paper.
2. Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) in a small bowl. Set aside
3. In another bowl: Cream peanut butter and brown sugar together until mixed well.
4. Add eggs and vanilla to mixture, mix well.
5. Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
Put sugar on a plate and get ready to ROLL! Use about a Tablespoon (I was a little more generous ;)) of dough and make into balls then roll around in sugar until fully coated. Place them on cookie sheet about 2" apart. Bake for about 10 minutes until cookies are a little puffed up. Pull cookie sheet out and then gently press one heart into the top of each cookie. Return to cookies to oven for another 2-3 minutes until golden and chocolate is softened. Let cool on tray for about 5-10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.
The best part of this recipe?! Besides the delicious cookies, of course! The dough. You can eat it... guilt free! {okay, maybe some sugar guilt...} but NO guilt due to raw eggs because you used THRIVE egg powder! Mmmm!
