Peanut Butter Cookies

There is something SO satisfying and comforting about the old time favorites!
I make these sometimes just to smell them cooking. It brings me right back to happy childhood memories.

For a fun little twist, you can make these and push a Hershey kiss into the hot dough for a chocolate touch.
