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.

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash and Brussels in a close up shot laid on white parchment paper

Roasted Almond Butter and Maple Glazed Tofu, Squash, and Brussels is a genuine triple threat. This dinner delight is vegetarian, full of flavor, and cooks in one pan. It doesn’t take your whole day to prepare either. At any given moment, you are thirty minutes of marinating, a few minutes of tossing ingredients together, and thirty minutes of hands-off roasting away from enjoying a flavor-packed, wholesome, vegetarian meal. Seriously. There’s really no downside to this recipe.
