Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich cookies

Like, woah.

Do not adjust your monitors or run screaming from the room. I know, these pictures. They are not my normal pictures and I’m not sure how I feel about it either.

Everything is so white and bright and is it boring? Or is it minimalistic? Or is that the same thing? Is minimalistic even a word?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies

I’m questioning everything about myself right now. I just waved my hand in front of my face and was like, duuuuuuude, where did that come from?

Apparently, my life is very easily turned upside down. But I made cookies, so that’s okay.

I know that peanut butter and jelly cookies have probably been done to death, but I don’t care and you can’t make me care, so there. These are delicious. Simple, slightly crunchy peanut butter oatmeal cookies filled with peanut butter and jelly goodness.

I mean, you could probably eat these for lunch and your mom wouldn’t even be that mad about it.

Then again, my kids totally tried that and I told them no. It’s so hard to have me for a mom sometimes.
