Peanut butter is hard to find in Brazil. And, when you do, a small jar costs about $15. So, a jumbo Sam's Club size jar of Peter Pan Peanut Butter is usually amongst the many "necessities" such as ziploc bags, peppermint tea, magazines, Starbursts, Bubblicious, Tootsie Rolls and so on that my dear Mom smuggles into Brazil every trip. It nearly brings me to tears. And so do these cookies!
