2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 slices bread
1 small banana, sliced

Add all ingredients to list

In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg and vanilla together.
Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on top of each slice of bread. Place the banana slices on top of one of the slices of bread. Place the other slice of bread on top of the first, to make a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

STELLA D’ORO IN ISRAEL

Who doesn’t love Stella D’oro’s Swiss Fudge Cookies? Almost everyone we know enjoys two or more of them every shabbat morning with a cup of coffee before shul.

So, the news spread very quickly here in Israel when the cookies began showing up in a limited number of markets in Jerusalem.

Then disaster struck! The Chief Rabbinate of Israel- well known for their integrity and honesty as well as love for all Jews- declared the cookies trefe! Yes, you read that correctly. Stella is N.G. here. Oh no, Mr. Bill.

So what’s the story? Imported kosher products in Israel must also have an additional kosher supervision from the rabbanut. Stella only has the OU, no rabbanut hechsher.

Our response? A big Bronx cheer! Stella D’oro is kosher. The OU certifies it. That is good enough for us. Frankly, the fact that the rabbanut does not have their hechsher on it only serves to make it even better.
