Happy Valentine’s Day!

Has your morning already been filled with pink-sprinkled treats, flowers, and sappy cards? I sure hope so.

Valentine’s Day is definitely special to me – today is the 11th anniversary of our first “real” date – but we never really go over the top with things.

Tonight our plans are to have dinner with Susan and her husband – with us girls making dinner and dessert. I have no idea what the plans are for the meal yet, but it’ll be fun no matter what we have.

But before our fancy dinner in, I’ve got a special new cookie to share in a virtual dessert party with some of my best blog friends.

Since some Valentine’s meals can be pretty complicated, I wanted an easy dessert – something that could be mixed in one bowl, that wouldn’t take long to bake, and that would be a little bit different than your normal, every day cookie.

But my favorite part of these cookies? There’s less than 10 ingredients and no flour! Yup, no flour. Just your favorite peanut butter, sugar, an egg, some baking soda and your favorite mix-in.

Easy, crispy, chocolatey. The perfect ending to your special dinner.
