1994 - Bursting With Flavor

Having tasted my friend Carla’s Peanut Butter Bursts at work last year, Lisa and I agreed they deserved a spot in the rotation. We love peanut butter almost as much as we love chocolate! We must get that from Dad because Mom has said, “Does it always have to be chocolate?” No, Mom, it can be peanut butter.

Since we made these and Grandma Baker’s Peanut Butter Fingers (more peanut butter and chocolate!) on Dec. 6, we decided not to make Peanut Butter Cookies this year. We made a pan each, and these newcomers vanished from our Christmas cookie trays as quickly as their veteran counterparts.
