Thanks for sharing your recipes on your blog. This recipe has been one of our family favorites for years! An alternative on the frosting: 5 minutes before they are done cooking open oven and cover with semi-sweet chocolate chips then put back in the oven. After you take out of oven spread the chocolate all over. Then cover chocolate with homemade peanut butter frosting (powdered sugar, peanut butter & milk). Swirl the two together while still warm.

What is a jelly-roll pan? I really want to make these. I Just want to make sure I have the right pan.

a jelly roll pan is just like a cookie sheet with slightly higher sides. like an commercial cookie sheet.
