|Jamjams just got pimped.|
Well, during that magical time, I managed to stay sane, full and happy with a little help from these cookies.. and CAA.
I'm going to reveal something about myself that you may or may not know. If you don't know, you've probably never met me in person, and you definitely have never gone out drinking with me. I, Amanda, am an accident waiting to happen.
And not in a small way either. I run into the sharp corners on tables, the rounded corners on my bed and even the floor with my toes on a regular basis. I fall up stairs.
So it would make perfect sense that I would lock my keys in my car, with my exam materials on the second day of the exams. It really would.
You would think that things like that would only happen in made for TV movies or bad sitcoms, but you'd be wrong. They happen to me.
This is why I needed buttery and jam-filled cookies to get me through. Because I know myself.
So if you ever have a really big day, night or week that you need to power through with a little help from filling and delicious cookies, I recommend these. Plus they're easy peasy!
Disclaimer: most of you know that I don't claim to be a health food blog or even a "healthy living blog", but that I make real food with things like bacon, butter and love, but the thing with these cookies is that whole wheat flour makes them better. I wouldn't put it in there unless it did. Trust me.
|See, that's what they were supposed to look like. I think it's the extra bit of egg that would do it.|
