    no big deal

    This recipe is fine but it's nothing extraordinary.

    Peanut Butter Jam Bar

    Jeannine Gramstad from Newburgh, NY

    If you use crunchy peanut butter, you taste the nuts when you bite & no one knows you cheated by not adding peanuts separately. First time I used strawberry jam. Second time I used grape jelly. Boys didn't care what kind of jelly, just wanted to know how long cooling process before they could devour.

    Another fast and delicious idea for cookie dough!

    ann ferraro from Watertown, MA

    I love the Nestle cookie dough and this is another idea for a delicious and fast treat for guests and children. I sometimes add a little of whatever jam or jelly I have in the cupboard also nuts or marshmallows or a little of all of the above. Love that dough...always have some on hand for!

    Peanut Butter Jam Bars

    Janice Harley from North Augusta, SC

    This recipe sounds really good but I need the nutritional information on it. I have a 2 year old that is diabetic and we need to know how many carbs it has. If anyone knows that would be really helpful. Thank you so much.

    Execellent Bake Sale Item

    JAN WILKINS from Blytheville, AR

    Our community held a bake sale for money for the hurricane victims. I made these, and they sold first! Will make for future bake sales. Personally, I found them just a "tad" dry, but perhaps it was my error since others have been more successful with them.
