Flakey Cookies

there are those cookies
that require an effort
in dental calisthenics
and then there are those
that melt in your mouth
a perfect blend of
flour, butter and sugar
mixed with a delicate hand
that’s the secret
saving the flour until last
gently blending it
into the thoroughly mixed
base ingredients
for peanut butter cookies
take equal parts of
white and brown sugar
cream an amount of butter
equivalent to half of the sugar
when thoroughly blended
add one egg
and a cup of simple
peanut butter
no extra sugar or salt
add vanilla to taste
sift about one and a half
cups of flour with
a large pinch of salt
and baking soda
carefully delicately
blend in
your flour mixture
as an added taste treat
put one dark chocolate kiss
in the center of each cookie
before baking
do not hesitate
to increase the flour
if the first baking
results in thin cookies
