I chose a recipe from my go-to children's cookbook, the c.1946 Cookbook for Girls and Boys by Irma S. Rombauer, who wrote the Joy of Cooking for us grownups. A hand-written recipe in my collection for another version of peanut butter cookies, Peanut Blossoms, instructed the placing of a Hershey's Kiss at the center of each cookie right after it came out of the oven. I did that on some cookies, put Peanut M&M's atop others and the remaining ones I baked in the traditional manner, with fork lines criss-crossing the top.

Everyone loved these cookies, even DS who didn't want dessert in the first place. Not being a fan of peanut butter cookies, I can't really comment. They tasted a bit sandy to me, a texture I adore in the French sable, but didn't in this cookie.
