I was pulling a sheet of peanut butter fluffernutter cookies out of the oven, and when my son glanced over, he asked why they all had a hashtag on them.
I explained that was ancient code for “peanut butter,” and had been imprinted on every peanut butter cookie since the invention of sugar comas. He was shocked. Peanut butter has its own cookie hashtag?
But beyond the obvious #generationgap, what the heck? Has it really been over 20 years since I baked peanut butter cookies? What kid doesn’t recognize the international forking symbol for peanut butter cookies?
Technically not holiday themed, but I got this new fluffernutter cookie cutter at Thanksgiving, so there’s that.
