*I weigh all my dry ingredients so the 6oz is the most accurate measurement for this recipe but if you don't have a scale then aerate your flour then scoop and level off with back of a knife. This is second most accurate.

This cookie came about many years ago, prolly when DS was in the 2nd grade. For grades 1-3 all I did was make him PB & J sandwiches (no crust) for lunch every day. That was my inpiration for these. I haven't made them in soo long and I think the grape balances the richness of the peanut butter.
