Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour

  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer cream together butter, SunButter, and brown sugar
  2. Once well creamed, add in vanilla, egg and applesauce. Mix well

  4. Refrigerate cookie dough for 30 minutes-2 hours
  5. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and line a baking sheet with a spill mat or parchment paper
  6. Place the remaining ¼ cup brown sugar into a small dish- be sure sugar is not packed
  7. Take a spoonful of dough (~1.5 tbsp) and roll it into a ball and place it in the brown sugar dish and roll it around to lightly coat. Place on cookie sheet
  8. Repeat this process with remaining dough
  9. Bake cookies for 10 minutes
  10. Remove cookies from the oven and immediately place a chocolate onto the center of the cookie and light press it down. Repeat for all cookies
  11. Allow cookies to cool fully, and enjoy!
Notes
The cookie dough needs time to chill, be sure to take this into account when making these!
The number of bags of chocolate hearts will depend on which brand you purchase and how many come in the bag.
