Recycled Bottles...

I admit to being a sucker for packaging and cute marketing. And, I have been a fan of the Adam's Peanut Butter Jar since I was about 10 and I had a friend whose mother would make homemade bread and then cut us a thick slice out of the oven with peanut butter, jam and a big cold glass of milk. I don't know if any culinary experience can really beat that. .. including these cookies.. But, they are pretty good.
It's fun to recycle the pretty jar or plastic cottage cheese container or whatever with a fun surprise to deliver to a friend. Call me a red-neck :)

That's adorable. I love that idea. I like that it's peanut butter cookies in a peanut butter jar. I'd WAY rather have cookies than peanut butter any day! How cute and they are green for March!
