Someone at work read my blog and was appalled that I didn’t have a peanut butter section. I’ve made a couple cookies with PB, and in that spirit, I went for these next.
These are in the “Kids Cookies” section, so they’re a piece of cake, right?
Looks pretty basic and easy. I’m feeling good and confident.
Crap. This is what happens when I start to feel confident. I take blurry pictures because I’m moving too quickly. Slowing down now…
If you were wondering, I still hate logs. I dread cutting/accidentally smashing them.
I went to Target, which took a little longer than an hour. When I returned…
It kinda looks like I’m slicing bread! Nice!
At this point, I’ve almost cleaned out the peanut butter jar. You better be happy.
Voila! Now you have a peanut butter sandwich!

Martha’s estimated time: 2 hours, 10 mins
What did I learn?
- Eating peanut butter along the way makes you not want to eat the cookies. I didn’t have one.
What do I need to learn?
- How do you make a perfect log? Mine had air pockets. Should I have smashed the dough down first?
These were popular at work. I might make them again.
Next time, should I add jelly?
