PB&J Cookie Sandwiches

With it being Easter holiday in SA at the moment, I’m finding it hard keeping the twins busy. When they’re not watching movies or playing outside, they’re under my feet and are always asking to help in the kitchen. I paged through my mom’s numerous recipe books and found this ridiculously easy recipe for peanut butter cookies. Four ingredients and one bowl? Seriously? I measured out the ingredients for the twins and told them to mix it all together, form balls, press on them with a fork and then popped them in to the oven. They absolutely loved it!

You could enjoy the cookies as is but I wanted to make cookie sandwiches and used strawberry jam as the ‘glue’. These were a massive hit. The peanut butter flavour is incredible in these cookies and they are the perfect snack with a glass of ice cold milk.

Ps. The cookies spread quite a bit so place them a good 5cm apart on the lined cookie sheet.
