oatmeal peanut butter cup jar cookie recipe
I am sitting here on my couch, enjoying the the peace and quiet.  My children are at school, the kitchen is clean, and the laundry is well, it is still there.  I am watching Regis and Kelly and tearing up at the tribute to all of Regis’s guests that have passed on.  How did I not know that half of these people were dead?

How are we on week 8 of 12 weeks of Christmas already?  I am so not ready for the holidays yet.  I have not even begun to think about Christmas.  I just realized yesterday that Thanksgiving is on Thursday.  I was at the grocery store and it suddenly dawned on me that I needed to order a turkey and get my act together.  I make the same things year after year, so making this meal is not hard, and I know how to do it so that it is completely manageable.  But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t take effort.  Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Last year, I posted a cookie jar recipe for Toffee Blondies, I had no idea that it would be so popular.  Not only is the presentation adorable, but the blondies are delicious.  This year is no different.  An oatmeal cookie with peanuts and Reese’s peanut butter cups?  Okay, I’m in.  Make a few jars for hostess gifts or just to have around for last minute gifts.

    These cookies look so good. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites, and when peanut butter is added, shut the front door! I could live off of those kinds of cookies.

    YUM! Adding them to my list….and for the record, you’re not the only one tearing up at the Regis Farewell. I watched it this morning (Friday) and couldn’t stop tearing up for the entire hour. I remember my mom watching him with Kathie Lee when I was young and it’s hard to believe he won’t be on TV anymore. :( Always good for a smile!
