Anyway back to my super lame post. I thought I was being crafty and using half brown sugar in the first batch and also using my kitchen aid mixer. (Yes I have a kitchen aid in my campus apartment! Thanks to my Auntie Jeanne for lending me her old one when she upgraded to a professional!) I think I beat the heck out of the dough, causing the peanut butter to basically separate. This time I used all white sugar (of the "super fine" variety because I wasn't paying attention at the store) and carefully watched and stopped the mixer when it just came together.
I also baked them for about 7 minutes at 350. My oven at school is super hot so that will depend on your stove. Both the stove top and oven get extremely hot way quicker than I am use to at home and consequentially I have burned my oatmeal several times.
Anyway here is what a good batch of these cookies should look like! I like to use the little Hershey kisses because I like chocolate and I hate when the large kisses fall off or you awkwardly have to nibble at them. And when you scoop out the cookies press them flat with a fork to make those markings. They will spread out a lot too so don't over crowd!
