Jif® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies and a Give Away

Can't keep my hand out of the cooke jar.






































I love cookies, always have and always will.  As you know from the numerous posts on this blog I also love peanut butter.  We go through a jar a week in our house.  It is a passion shared by my husband, son, and I.  Hopefully our daughter will love it too when she is old enough to eat it.  I love peanut butter so much, I have actually nicknamed my son "peanut butter".    Not long ago Jif® contacted me asking if I would be interested in writing a review of their famous Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies and hosting a Give Away.  Jif®  just happens to be the only peanut butter I use for baking so I was instantly eager to work with them.  I actually made these cookies twice.  The first time I used butter since I almost always use butter in a recipe that calls for shortening.  The cookies were good, but nothing to brag about.  I made them again following the recipe exactly using shortening and let me tell you it made a difference.  They were crispier on the outside, softer in the middle,  held their shape better, and overall just more delicious.  My son helped me make these.  He is only two and already has a passion for cooking and baking.  I love the memories he and I are making together.  I highly recommend you give these a try.  (see details below on the Give Away)
