Kissin' Cookies

Mmmm, yummy post today! Julia challenged us on SCS to make something sweet and share a family favorite recipe as well. I have a lot of those great glassine bags that I can give away cookies in and thought that this would be a quick and tasty recipe to share as well.
Here is my close shot of the card with Flopsey. The sentiment jumped right out at me as I was using Hershey's Kisses in my recipe. I did a little paper piecing with the recliner and colored flopsey with my copics. For the bunny I used E40,E43,E44 and a little R20 in his ears and cheeks. Added a skiff of highlights with my opaque white paint from copic as well.
The crocheted flower I made myself and I thought the chocolate ric rac added a nice compliment to the ever so fabulous "early bird paper collection" from Cosmo Cricket.
Yummy, here is the close shot of a family favorite and the recipe:
1/2 c. margarine
1/3 c. peanut butter (I use smooth)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Hershey's Kisses (I used 50...but maybe I ate a few)

Cream together your butter and sugar. Add egg, peanut butter and vanilla...mix well. Mix dry ingredients then combine all together. Roll 1" balls in your hand and roll in a plate of sugar to coat, place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes (or until you see cracking of the edges of the cookie). Place hershey kisses in the center and bake 2-3 minutes longer. Remove, cool and enjoy!

*******Here is a fun little alteration to my stick pin. Thinking of chocolate I LOVE dipped items. Ice cream cones (Dairy Queen), fruit, pretzels...basically anything goes well with good chocolate. I wanted my stick pin to have that chocolate look so I dipped it in my golden acrylic paint and blasted it with my heat gun. I love that it is very imperfect... just like a real dipped item.
See you back here tomorrow for some Taylor sketch fun! I'm off to enjoy some coffee and cookies!

What a fabulous card! Anything dipped in chocolate is my motto! I might have to search for my old acrylics and give that dipped look a try for some cards I need to make. Credits will be given if I do. ;)
