oh yummy, we so miss PB here at our home as we have a little guy who is allgergic. Looking forward to the day we can bring PB back in. But for now he is just to little to know the difference in the foods.

But the recipe looks wonderful, brings back memories as my sis and I used to bake cookies each week for some one different in the church. So fun to do and such a blessing to others.

Have a blessed day

We're in the same boat as Mrs. B. My husband's absolute favorite cookie of all time is peanut butter. He especially loves my peanut butter cookies too. But Ethan (4 years old) has really BAD peanut allergies. I only make them when he's staying with grandparents or something. Ethan is old enough to know not to eat peanuts, but it's so much different when you cook with peanuts. A PB&J goes from the jar to the bread to the belly. Peanuts seem to touch everything when you cook with them.

The recipe looks wonderful though. Maybe next time Ethan spends the night away I can give it a try.
