Easy Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

If you’ve moved to a different country and you’ve been trying to learn the culture and the language, chances are you’ve asked some dumb questions and got laughed at. Questions like “Who is King Arthur? Was he real?”; “What does BYOB mean?”; “Who’s Dr. Seuss?”; “Does hooray mean what I think it means?” randomly pop up in my head. Usually, I just ask Han out loud knowing that he will probably laugh and I am gonna have to wait until he catches his breath and then get my answers.
