For me stress equals cooking and most often, chocolate! As the past few weeks have been a bit stressful, it’s really no wonder that these cookies made their way into my oven. Spectacularly easy and absolutely delicious, these cookies will find a special place in your heart. They have always held a special place in mine!

Anyhow, enough talking… go forth and bake cookies!

Peanut butter Cookies

This is a recipe I grew up on; an Elkins family recipe and an all around favorite! Anyone who likes Peanutbutter or chocolate will love these. And just a warning… they will not last long! This is my go-to sugary comfort food.

1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. Peanut butter
1 egg
2/3 c. chocolate chips (can also be made with hershey kisses*)

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Roll into 1 in balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Use a fork to flatten the cookies (dipping the fork in sugar helps to keep it from sticking to the cookies).
Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet.

* When making these with the kisses mix just the sugar, Peanut butter and egg and bake in rounded balls. Press the unwrapped kisses into the cookies immediately after removing them from the oven.
