1 cup peanut butter (I used Adam's Natural crunchy)
1/4 cup brown sugar
chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, nuts (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the peanut butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and mix until well-combined. If using, stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and/or nuts. Drop (heaping) tablespoonful-sized balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet and flatten slightly. (I rolled them into balls before flattening them.) If desired, create a cross-hatch design with a fork, for an authentic peanut butter cookie look. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before devouring. Makes a dozen normal-sized cookies.
