Peanut butter cookies are a classic favorite for many, but why not take them to the next level by making them even cuter with adorable paw prints? These delightful treats are sure to make any cookie lover, and animal lover, smile.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the cookies for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Avoid over-baking to ensure a soft and chewy texture. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack completely before decorating.
When it comes to decorating these cute paw print cookies, the options are endless. You can use melted chocolate or icing to fill in the heart-shaped imprint, making it stand out more. To add an extra touch, consider using colorful sprinkles or edible glitter to make the cookies sparkle and shine. Get creative with your decorations and have fun!
