Peanut Butter Creme Sandwich Cookies

So my birthday is in ELEVEN days.

I usually don’t do much for my birthday beyond maybe making a nice dinner and having dessert. I’m the type of person who would rather celebrate someone else’s birthday than my own. Now, don’t get me wrong. I do still love presents, because really, who doesn’t?

But this year, since my 4-year-old insists that I get party hats and plates for my birthday, I’m going to indulge her. I’m thinking of going the My Little Pony route.

I’ve always wanted to be Twilightlicious.
