PB and J Biscotti
kid (big and small) would not love these PB and J Biscotti? If you enjoy peanut butter and jelly in a sandwich,
wait until you try this delectable cookie.
And…… they have the advantage of not squishing into a sandwich mish mash
ball in transit. With peanuts, peanut
butter and Peanut butter meal the roasted peanut flavor is for real. Pared with tart dried cherries, they will
bring back fond childhood lunch time memories,
This dough is quite sticky, so it if best to chill a bit to make it easier to hand, and the roll the dough flat between two pieces of waxed paper, or one large folded sheet.
If you would rather, you can substitute other dried fruit or strawberry or grape fruit leather for the dried cherries, and get much the same result.
Why not whip up a batch and surprise you (adult) friends at you next picnic lunch.
