When my brother sent me the obituary for the Pillsbury Doughboy, (Day 5) I wept, as he was my hero. He helped me through so many trying times.  When in the depths of despair that there was no dessert for lunches I would discover a package of his chocolate chip cookies hidden in the crisper. I had to hide the dough because my sons would find it and eat it raw before I got a chance to turn it into cookies.

On occasion, I do bake from scratch, and today I am going to share one of my favourite recipes for cookies. It has three ingredients, but because I like to get fancy, I add a fourth. I found it on the back of a Kraft peanut butter jar. It is my go to when the Pillsbury Doughboy dough gets eaten before I have a chance to turn it into a culinary pleasure.

You need one cup of Kraft peanut butter, one egg and ½ cup of sugar. You mix these together along with my magic ingredient: chocolate chips, roll them into balls and flatten them with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and voilà: homemade cookies that will amaze your family! (Or, at least my family.)
