TWD : Peanut Butter Crisscrosses


This week we baked with Jasmine of Jasmine Cuisine and she chose this that in my ideas is an American classic.
When I lived in Santa Barbara I worked in an house where we were so lucky to have Joanne a cook who would bake cookies and fill two cookie jars for all the workers with all kind of cookies but PB cookies were always there !


I must tell you that in Italy we almost never use peanut butter, I was amazed to find out kids eat peanut butter sandwich almost every day .....


But you know what ? My kids loved these cookies !
Not to mention the fun Anita and I had decorating them with chocolate... this is Anita mad at me because she wants to decorate alone.


Please go here for the recipe and visit the Tuesday with Dorie site to find out what we are up to !!

I think that mine would melt away if we didn't have peanut butter available on a daily basis. Those cookies look fun!
