… make peanut butter cookies. I bought 2 huge jars of organic peanut buttter at Costco, but the kids did not like it at all. Today while cleaning out the pantry, I found the two jars barely used, so I decided to put them to good use. The cookies came out great and the kids don’t know I used the "nasty" peanut butter. Maybe I’ll tell them when the cookies are all gone 🙂
