When I made peanut butter at home I thought to do some recipe with it,but did not do & it was lying on my fridge for a long then all of a sudden decided to make cookies with it.First thought why not try using an egg in it then decided it would be heavy for cookies and made eggless version.To make more colourful with it I pressed MM on it else can use cadburys gems which attracts the lil ones more.
