Dear Mizz Manners,
I love peanut butter, but one of my friends is VERY allergic peanuts. If they are even in the room she could go to the hospital! The problem is, I want to have my favorite treat, peanut butter cookies, at my birthday party. I want her to come, but it's also my special day. What should I do?

I can understand why you would want to chow down on your favorite treats for your bday, but think about what is more important, a cookie or your friend? You can have all sorts of fun treats like popcorn, ants on a log, hummus, and cake pops during your party, and save to cookie making for later.
Think of how much fun it would be to turn cookie making into a birthday activity with your parents! You can play music and talk about how much fun it is to be another year older!
My advice is to make the party for your friends allergy-free, and save your special birthday treat for later.
