You Will Need

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and then set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, beat the granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter and butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.


Add the egg and vanilla and beat an additional minute.


Add the flour mixture and stir on low speed until just combined.


Portion into balls, using 1 ½ tablespoons of dough for each ball. Press the ball tightly, then roll in granulated sugar until coated. Place on a baking sheet about 2-inches apart.


Bake 10-12 minutes, or until there are cracks across the top of each cookie. 


Remove from the oven and immediately press a chocolate heart into each cookie. Cool completely.
