When I was pregnant I craved peanut butter. I mean I could sit down with a spoon and a whole jar a peanut butter and finish it in under 20 minutes! So when I came across this recipe for PB cookies I knew I had to try it! The original recipe is for peanut butter and jelly sandwich cookies, so if you’d like those instead just simply spread a layer of your favorite jam in between two pb cookies and enjoy!
