Peanut Butter Cookie + Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches

Today I’m taking it back.

Way, way back.

Think pig tails and bowl hair cuts.

Think She-Ra and (the original) Transformers.*

Today I’ve got everyone’s childhood favorite.

That’s right.

I’ve got PB & J.

And I made it better.

But Arbine, how can you make a classic like PB & J better?

Well, you make it a dessert.

Best after school snack EVER.
