Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters
I know... just the name of these cookies is enough to wear you out. I first saw these when Steph from A Whisk and A Spoon posted about them, and got the recipe from Stefany at Proceed with Caution. I ummed and ahhed over whether to make these or not, but, as always, the cookies won out.
A word of warning - creaming this amount of butter, peanut butter and sugar by hand is very hard work. I spent at least half an hour wishing for an electric mixer whilst doing it! It wouldn't have taken as long if I had have waited for the butter to soften, but I was lacking patience when I made these.
I got about 45 cookies out of this recipe. Since I like my cookies chewy, I took them out of the oven after only 12 minutes. At this point, the cookies seemed to have not set at all, but never fear, they firm up as they cool on the rack. Just be sure to use a spatula to remove them from the tray - otherwise they will just collapse!
And thankfully, the boys at my partner's work were more than happy to make short work of these, so I didn't have to fight the temptation to eat all 45 myself - they are that good that I just might have!
True to all those who participate in Tuesdays with Dorie, I will not be posting the recipe here. Check out Proceed with Caution to see it, and enjoy!
