I love, love, love to bake (and have the waistline to prove it). But I understand that some people find it a bore and a snore. Hey, it's all about choice. This, however, is the time of year when even the most inept cook is often expected to bring something along to a family gathering. For you folks, here's a little tip. Pick up a package of pre-mixed cookie dough at the supermarket. Yes, yes, yes, I know it's probably filled with hyrodextromorphinaalihieosulfate, but never mind about that now. Do you want to impress your friends TODAY or live to be 150? I thought so. Dash to the candy aisle, and pick up a box of peanut butter cups or Hershey Kisses (the caramel ones are good). When you get home, squash bits of the cookie dough into little non-stick muffin pans. Bake according to the directions (10 minutes or so). While the cookies are still warm, place a chunk of the peanut butter cup or the Hershey Kiss in the middle. Let them cool and them remove them from the pan. They taste terrific and look they came from a very complicated recipe. These babies will be the smash hit of the sweet table, and you'll have a new-found reputation as "he/she who can do it all".
