Why I Love This Recipe

When I found this recipe last year, I thought it was cute and the cookies are pretty good! They’re like a normal peanut butter cookie, but with a white chocolate kiss on top and the most unique part of all - they’re pink! The pure substances are baking soda,salt,and sugar.The ingredients that are homogeneous mixtures are all-purpose flour, butter, the milk, the baking powder, and the fully mixed batter. The heterogeneous mixtures are the egg, the batter before it is mixed, and the cookies after they are finished baking. The cookies flattening when being baked and the dough being formed into balls are both physical changes. The puffing up of the cookies, and the change in color on the bottom of the cookies as they bake both show chemical changes. This recipe makes approximately 3 dozen cookies.

Ingredients You'll Need

(118 ml) 1/2 cup granulated sugar
(118 ml) 1/2 cup brown sugar
(118 ml) 1/2 cup peanut butter

(4 ml) 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together the butter, shortening, and peanut butter.

Roll the dough into 1 1/2 - 2 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet at about 3 inches apart.
