Sweet and Spicy Zucchini Refrigerator Pickles - A perfect recipe for using up your stash of zucchini! | browneyedbaker.com

Then, I sort of got sucked in to new and different peanut butter cookie recipes, the same way I get sucked into new chocolate chip cookie recipes. These cookies are my latest delve into peanut butter cookies with a twist.
