Lovely is the smell of the dough. The magnificent blend of vanilla, sugar, butter and peanut butter whiffs beneath me as I scrape the spatula around the bowl.
I can hardly wait for the peanut butter blossom’s signature moment. Those few seconds where the chocolate star is lightly placed on a freshly baked cookie, still warm, nearly melting into its golden base.
It’s 12 minutes until that glorious moment.
