am not a country girl, but I make an exception for farm shows. A farm show, if you're not familiar, showcases a state's agricultural community in a big expo center. There are square dances and cow beauty pageants and big tractors. There is also food.

Food at a farm show is made for people who spend their days constantly tending to their farms. It is packed with calories, fat (the real stuff), and flavor. It is, as you may imagine, unbelievably delicious.

This week, the Pennsylvania Farm Show is taking place in the state's capitol, Harrisburg. Out of the many statewide food competitions, one stands out for me: the cocoa cookie contest. Pennsylvania, after all, is the home of Hershey's. We know our chocolate.

I've tried several recipes from the Pennsylvania Farm Show and I keep coming back to the same one. Makayla Feathers of Bedford County's peanut butter cup brownies. They are rich and dense and so creamy.
