I just finished making 64 “Peanut Butter Cookie Kisses”. Making cookies takes lots of numbers because you have to count everything — 2 1/2 cups, 1/4 tsp , 1 tsp, 2 tsp, 1 1/4 cups, etc. And, do a lot of stirring (except our mixer really did the work for me). With a wife who is a chemist, you just have to be accurate or maybe there will be an explosion!
The recipe Joyce gave me said 72 cookies; the recipe on the package of kisses said 60; so I guess I must be average with my 64.
I am sending this to you so that you can rejoice in what I am eating during Christmastide and maybe you can also be a bit sad about what you are missing by not being here.
The hardest part of this cookie-making enterprise is not eating the kisses between their unwrapping and their being placed on the hot cookies. Smile.
