I’ve always wanted to be a master baker… someone who is known for their dessert expertise. But, considering it takes 10,000 hours to master something… I figured it would probably be detrimental to my health. Imagine how many cookies comes with 10,000 hours of baking! There’s a good chance I would eat at least half of them in the process.
So instead of becoming obese, I have learned to be content with my very amateur skill set in the baking department. Generally speaking, I stick to the fail proof cookie recipes… and fortunately for me, it doesn’t take much effort to make a mixture of peanut butter, chocolate, and sugar taste good.
Look at all that wonderful sugar/peanut butter! I could end this post here and tell you all to go sit down on the couch with the mixing bowl and a spoon watching the biggest loser.
But I wont.
We made balls of inch-like size and rolled them in MORE SUGAR and then placed them on the baking sheet. I’m not sure if we made these things too large or I ate too much of the dough… but the recipe makes 48 and we ended up with 30.
After a quick 10 minute bake I shoved the kisses right in the middle (cracking them all over the place… but they still held up) and then let them cool. I was proud of myself… I only ate two of them while they were still lava hot.
By the way, Alicia did almost all of the work on this one… I just sat at the counter and peeled the wrappers off these damned kisses.
Peanut butter blossoms… I dare you to find a better combination of ingredients than peanut butter, chocolate, and sugar.
