Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cupcakes

PB&J Cupcakes

The combination of peanut butter and jelly – or PB&J – reminds me of the brown bag lunches I took to school as a kid. They were definitely my favorite type of sandwich, and I am still a fan of the flavor combination in any form because salty, sticky peanut butter always seems to pair perfectly with sweet, fruity jam. These Peanut Butter and Jelly ... Read More »

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a cookie that will appease both peanut butter lovers and chocolate chip fans: a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. You can certainly throw a handful of chocolate chips into just about any peanut butter cookie dough (or dip the cookies in chocolate!) to get this flavor combination, but peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies have different textures to them and this cookie ...

Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Peanut butter pie is, quite honestly, something that I didn’t think would appeal to me the first time I had it. I like peanut butter, but a pie with a super-creamy peanut butter base actually sounded like it would be a bit (or a lot) too much.

Chocolate Truffle-Filled Peanut Butter Cups

These cookies are like a peanut butter cup, but inside out and in cookie form.

These start ... Read More »

Peanut Butter and Jelly Rugelach

PB & J Rugelach, up close

When I was a kid, I really disliked rugelach. It wasn’t a cookie I encountered often, but they always popped up around the holidays at Hannukah or Christmas parties. I didn’t like the mystery nut fillings, which rarely had a distinct flavor, and I disliked the fact that they were usually hard and dry. In short, I didn’t care for rugelach because I had always ...
