St. Patrick's Day Birthday Cookies

My brother was born on St. Patrick's Day, 30-something years ago today. Happy Birthday Brat! Since I'm currently unemployed and couldn't afford the big bag of cash he asked for, I sent him a homemade gift instead. I made bite-sized-ish Peanut Butter Blossoms from this recipe. My oven is a bit wonky, it tends to heat up extremely fast and stay H-O-T so I blackened the first cookies that were in the oven. The recipe called for 10 - 12 minutes of baking time in a normal oven, but mine, after a few rounds of trial and error in the oven, needed only 6 minutes and 30 seconds until they were done. It made for an entertaining evening.  I had so many Hershey Kisses left over and Jif Creamy Peanut Butter from making my brother's cookies that I made another batch of cookies and gave some to my doorman, to one of my clients (got me 2 more projects by stopping by their offices with cookies) and brought the rest to the girls of the wedding dress weekend.  They went over very well...everyone loves surprise cookies.
