I am now off from school until January 2nd and cannot wait to cook everyday! My brother, Ross, still has his economics and calculus exams before finishing his first term at Brown. He is a rather TIMOROUS baker and has always left that job to me. To give him a little study break, I whipped him up some peanut butter cookies with a little surprise that I will deliver to him tonight! He has been staying up late to study, so I’m hoping these sugary treats will help keep him from succumbing to a SOMNIFEROUS state. This recipe is like any other peanut butter cookie, but I add a Hershey’s Kiss to each one for some extra sweetness. Enjoy!
These might just be my favorite cookies, and I’m even considering memorizing the recipe VERBATIM… and I do not do that very often! They are also so versatile, and if you prefer to do a chocolate, vanilla or molasses batter, the Hershey’s Kiss will still serve as a surprising treat. Also, please excuse my dark pictures; the weather has been very gloomy in Newport today!
