Heart Shaped Biscuits w/filling

I have a special treat for everyone this Valentine’s Day.  It’s a mouthwatering, delicious treat. I’ve had this idea for a while but just hadn’t found time to make it. With my heart shaped cookie cutter in hand, I finally MADE time to bake up some Peanut Butter and Jelly Biscuits & Peanut Butter and Chocolate Biscuits. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

PB&J Biscuits

1 tube of Pillsbury biscuits (each biscuit cut in half, horizontal)
Peanut Butter
Jelly (any flavor)
Cooking spray (ONLY if your biscuit instructions call for it)

PB & Chocolate Biscuits

1 tube of Pillsbury biscuits (each biscuits cut in half, horizontal)
Peanut Butter
Chocolate kisses or stars or chocolate chips or Hersey’s chocolate bar or Nutella – any kind of chocolate that will melt nicely.
Cooking spray (ONLY if your biscuit instructions call for it)

Preheat oven to 375° or whatever the biscuit instructions tell you. Prepare a baking pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray, parchment paper or a baking mat.

Roll out the cut biscuits (by cut, I mean the biscuits sliced horizontally), just big enough to make a heart with your cookie cutter (we don’t want to waste too much of the biscuit). This recipe works well without the cutter too… just roll out to the thickness you desire. 

Carefully apply a spoonful of peanut butter to the biscuits. Repeat this step with jelly or if you’re going with chocolate, add as much or as little as you’d like. Take another heart shaped biscuit, place it on top of the filling and gently press the two biscuits together along the sides. This helps keep the filling inside the biscuit. 

Bake for about 10 minutes. 

With my scraps I made heart shaped biscuits without filling. 

The options are endless. You can get crazy creative with biscuits. I have tons of other ideas that I will be sharing with you over the course of this year. Eventually I plan to use homemade biscuits and what a delight it will be.
