PB&J Layered Cream Dessert

Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina,  @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG

Peanut butter is such a typical American treat. I remember that it was impossible to get it in my home country when I grew up and even now it is not as easy to find as you may think. When I was a kid my sister went to Canada through school and she brought the famous PB&J sandwich to our house. Funny enough, I disliked it. It was not like anything I have ever had before. Now, that I live here for many years already, I am definitely hooked on that combination. And who doesn't like a creamy dessert? Not me, the creamier the better.
