Since school is out now, and pretty much the only planned event I have during
the week is my art class from 9-1 everyday (with occasional errands sprinkled here and there),
I have a lot of time to be a lazy bum.
Camaron works allllllll day until pretty late. The last thing I want is for him to come home from working hard all day only to find I've been sitting around filling my arteries and our Netflix queue.
This is my solution for now: Have tons of yummy food coming out of the oven as soon as
he gets home, so that delicious aromas are immediately all he can think about.
No need to worry about what else I've done (or haven't done) all day.
Last night, I successfully put the plan into action with my favorite cookies:
peanut butter kiss cookies/peanut blossoms/blissssss
I got the recipe off of the Hershey's site. I figured they know a think or two about baking
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.
3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet. (I made mine a little big, I think. Oh well -and don't be judging the weird shape of the one in the middle)
4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
If you're hungry, come on over, we still have a ton.
Oh, wait, I'm at home alone with a bag full of cookies and Parks & Recreation is all queued up
...you'd better hurry.
