TOTAL TIME:

INGREDIENTS

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup JUSTIN’S® Classic or Honey Peanut Butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup raspberry preserves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugars, and peanut butter on medium speed until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add to butter mixture, and mix on low speed until just incorporated.
  3. Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a well-floured surface. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Reroll scraps, and repeat process. Place half of the cut-outs on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Using a 1-inch heart-shaped cutter, cut out and remove dough star shapes from the center of the remaining half of dough rounds. Transfer dough rounds with heart cutouts removed to lined baking sheets.
  4. Bake cookies 12 to 13 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer pans to wire racks, and cool cookies completely.
  5. Sift powdered sugar over cookies with star cutouts. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons preserves on one side of remaining cookies. Place a heart cutout cookie, powdered sugar side up, over each jam covered cookie, and gently press.

Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie on cloth with oatmeal flakes in a bowl and scattered on a gray wooden background

You can make lots of things in a skillet, one of my personal favorites is making my Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie recipe. It’s better than your average cookie because I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter and JUSTIN’S® Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups to the dough. This cookie comes out of the oven crispy at the top, gooey in the middle.

 

Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter Churro Doughnuts with cinnamon sticks in the background on a white background

I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

Get a JUSTIN’S® Dozen of these Guilt-Free Maple Almond Butter Doughnuts. They’re made with JUSTIN’S® Maple Almond Butter so you know they’re good. Just kidding, don’t really eat 13 doughnuts, no matter how good they are.

 

Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles on a white background with hazelnuts with blurred Justin's peanut butter jar

Dairy Free Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread stacked on parchment on two wooden dishes with whole banana on blue background

There’s nothing like warm banana bread for dessert. That is until you add JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter. Did I mention it’s dairy-free? You can thank me later.
