Okay, I’m back!  That Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter is so good by itself I just spoon some out of the jar and eat it straight up seven times a couple times throughout the day.  Even though I made Cinnamon Raison Peanut Butter Krispy Treats, and despite making really good friends with my giant peanut butter jar, and although every spoon I own is sitting in the kitchen sink from all the PB jar dunkin’, I still have A TON leftover…
