Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Make a Great Icebreaker
I want to be a good neighbor. I just moved to this really nice neighborhood in our new city but I have been busy with work, my day job, and traveling for work that I had not yet met the neighbors. However, with the recent labor day holiday, I had time to bake and meet our neighbors. So that is what I did.
One afternoon I turned on the music, got out the oatmeal, peanut butter, and other ingredients and started baking.
I baked these delicious peanut butter oatmeal cookies and took a plate of cookies to each of our neighbors to introduce myself. It was so good to meet them. Everyone was very friendly and, of course, these Peanut Butter Oatmeal cookies make it much easier to break the ice.
One neighbor invited me in to meet her family, including their two dogs, Butter, and Ginger.
All the neighbors loved the cookies, and one called me later to ask for the recipe.
