Christmas cookie crisis

As a Christmas present to all of the managers at work I decided to do something a little personal and bake some cookies for everyone. I have never been a baker so I thought it would be a good idea to involve Shay, so that no one would get poisoned.We began with one of my favorites, Peanut Butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss on top. A wonderful cookie, just not so wonderful for our egos. The first batch of PB cookies I got the recipe online from Betty Crocker’s Website. Between Shay and I, we added a little too much salt and way too much flour. The cookies were dry and tasted like we dipped our tongues in a bowl of salt. To top it off, with the slightest touch of our fingers our cookies literally deflated in front of our eyes. 

Since we were still missing some ingredients for a different cookie batch we ran to Ralphs and just in case, picked up PB cookie mix.

Our second batch of PB cookies came from a recipe in a book my sister, Sandy, gave me before I moved called “Where’s Mom Now That I Need Her?” The batter ended up looking like we were going to bake straight peanut butter and the “cookies” flattened flatter than the cookie tray.

Finally we knew it was time to break out the big guns. We were using the packaged PB cookie mix we had bought. The cookies were delicious! Next time we’ll just start with cookies from the store.
