Looking for a little something special for your Valentine instead of the standard box of chocolates? These peanut butter blossom cookies with a little red food coloring and zebra striped Hershey Kisses are going over pretty well in our house and at work. The only change to the recipe on the back of the peanut butter jar I made was to add a half a dozen drops of food coloring and mixing it with the mixer [it was nearly impossible to do this by hand].
If you’re looking for something a little fancier with a slightly healthy twist, try this sugar cookie tart inspired by the Pioneer Woman. I altered the recipe by using a sugar cookie mix from the store. Once the dough is mixed, split it in half and baked in two heart shaped pans [you may want to have someone in mind to give the second tart to]. For the creme topping I used one jar of Fluff and a half a container of cream cheese substitute, blended together. Top each heart shaped cookie with just enough cream topping to hold the fruit in place. Top with your favorite fruit and you’re good to go.
