Not quite the cookie I grew up with!!

stack of cookies, spoon of peanut butter, milk, orange zest

Marie or a Rich tea biscuit sandwiched with butter was the go to snack or supper, pretty decent. With gallons of milk to wash it down, in fact milk with breakfast, lunch & dinner was how it went. But catch my kids drinking it, would be like waiting for a blue moon. A little with breakfast on their cereal. I’m wondering if that’s the norm’ with all kids?

Converted a long time ago to peanut butter & jam & then peanut butter cookies.

Give this quick & easy recipe a go
