Does Jif Kick Up Peanut Butter?
I made sure to hide the rest of the Jif because I wanted to try it in cocoa peanut butter cookies. I've made cookies like this before and here is the weird thing: these cookies, with the Jif Cinnamon Flavored Peanut Butter didn't taste like much of anything. It was as though the ingredients were too balanced and canceled each other out. I'm not sure what is to blame. When I've made peanut butter cookies in the past and substituted out some of the flour for baking cocoa and I can taste the cocoa, the butter, the sugar, and the peanut butter but that was not the case here. The peanut butter was an aftertaste only and the cinnamon didn't come through at all. I can't recommend this product for baking. I won't share this recipe with you because it was a failure but here is a photo of the cookies themselves.
So have you seen and used Jif's new Cinnamon Flavored Peanut Butter yet? What did you think of it?
