Sometimes it’s fun to recreate nostalgic treats. You know, the fun cookies, cakes, and candies that you used to love to get at the store as a kid on special occasions? New memories are formed and old are remembered when you get into the kitchen and whip together some of your favorites. These Homemade Peanut Butter Mallomars are a variation of the Mallomars you may have picked up down the cookie aisle back in the day. However, these are (dare I say?) made even better with the help of peanut butter! With a peanut butter cookie instead of the traditional shortbread you’ve got a fun twist on an old favorite!
