Products & Recipes

Bake up some goodness on June 12 th !  Each year, National Peanut Butter Cookie Day pays tribute to this family favourite. The day allows cookie lovers and peanut butter lovers to step away from the pies and cakes to indulge in a little cookie and peanut butter therapy.

Fun Fact: the peanut butter we know and love today didn’t become commercially available until 1922 when Joseph Rosefield, a food businessman from Alameda California kept the peanut oil from separating from the solids through a homogenization process. Afterwards, he patented the process and sold it to a company that began making a peanut butter under the Peter Pan brand name.
