I got this recipe from a friend of mine. These cookies are delicious! As with any bar cookie, they are easier to make than drop cookies. I love these with a glass of milk. Although any flavor jelly can be used, grape is my favorite!

Very good tasting with good texture as well! My entire family said,"This deserves a 5", with the exception of my hubby of course. He took an outside edge that was a little more crunchy, and with no teeth had a few problems! LOL

My wife is the peanut butter lover in the family. I made these for a church fellowship and she ate almost a quarter of them. Going on her rating (I don't like peanut butter) this is a 5. Oh and they are real easy to make. Thanks for a new recipe.

Easy to make, and the kids really enjoyed the peanut butter and jam flavours. Serve with cold milk or coffee for afternoon tea. Thanks Whisper.
