Hi Cookie Eating Friends– I know, I really do, that there are SO many chocolate chip recipes out there. But I happened on this one that combines 3 favorite cookies– peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate chip!! And they are just the right amount of crispy edges and softy centers.
I made them for my Monday ladies yesterday evening. And Kendall, our student friend staying with us, just about polished them off during his late long studies last night. They’re pretty great.
OATMEAL, PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1/2 cup butter softened*
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup whole oats
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
With an electric mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla until it’s thoroughly blended. Then beat in the flour, oats, baking powder and salt. Finally mix in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the batter onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Makes about 3 dozen smallish cookies. And pop them in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Delicious hot from the oven!!
*10 to 12 seconds in the microwave makes refrigerated butter just right.
