Do any of you remember me mentioning in an earlier blog, Homeschool wonderworld, how I clearly remember cutting a recipe in half while I was studying fractions? This is THAT recipe. So, not only is it delicious, it is full of history.
1 1/4 cup butter (the real stuff) 1 1/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, depending on your mood) 1 1/4 cup white sugar 1 1/4 cup brown sugar 3 eggs 2 1/2 tsp vanilla 2 1/2 TBSP milk 2 1/2 tsp baking soda 1 1/4 tsp salt 4 1/2 cups flour Hershey Kisses if so desired
Cream together all ingredients. Roll into balls and slightly flatten. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. Top with Kisses immediately, and remove from pan to cool. If you prefer plain, they are plenty delicious without kisses. I sometimes put dark chocolate chips in and bake them like that.
Of course, since this is me, the health conscious diabetic, I usually use Splenda instead of the white sugar, and half the flour is freshly ground whole wheat. That still doesn't make them good for you, but a little less bad....
