    Thanks, Jason!
    I've got a couple extra jars of peanut butter left over from Christmas (intended for peanut butter fudge that I never got around to making) - now I know what to do with them!

    Such a kid-friendly recipe, too.

    I'm glad that this is such a hit, and in fact I do. The cookies are from one of DW's magazines, as I said, and the following fudge recipe was from my 7th grade home ec class. Will post later. Dad got a tractor stuck and I have to go pull him out.

    Ok, I'm back. Will explain what happened in the January weather thread. Back to the fudge recipe:

    1 can (I think it's 14 oz...the regular size can) Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
    1 package (12 oz or whatever they are) semi sweet chocolate chips
    1 great big dollop of marshmallow cream
    nuts if desired

    Melt it all up in a double boiler, put in a square cake pan or similar to set up in the fridge, and you have a batch of really easy (and darn good) chocolate fudge.

    Old Peanut Butter Still Good

    I just opened a jar of peanut butter to make Jason's sugar cookie recipe. The jar was one of three that I've had stored for a while. The date on the jar said to use by 2002! Guess what? The peanut butter is still GOOD.

    I made Jason's easy sugar cookies and my DH really liked them! I made them for my daughter who can't eat wheat products and it was a hit with their family too.

    I'll be making them again and plan on putting a few little choco chips on the top, since my hubby loves his chocolate.

    Thanks again Jason, for that recipe. And I'll be enjoying my peanut butter too!

    I made a batch of the fudge I mentioned a few posts back in this thread. Here's some pics. Note the hillbilly double boiler.

    The first pic is the "double boiler" that I used to keep from scorching the ingredients. I know, I know the stove is grubby but I did a lot of cooking this weekend and will clean it after dinner tonight.

    The second pic is the sweetened condensed milk (used off brand this time and it tastes just fine) at a low boil with the marshmallow cream added and starting to melt.

    The third pic is the fudge in a pan with a light coat of cooking spray. A couple hours in the fridge and it'll be ready to go!

    older peanut butter

    I think that the shelf life for peanut butter is longer until the jar has been opened. Once it is open and exposed to air, it will go rancid in a few months, depending upon its age.
