Cookie Nirvana


I admit I was skeptical. Chunky peanut butter and oatmeal chocolate chipsters? The word overkill comes to mind. I was seriously considering scaling back on this week's TWD recipe. I asked quality control (the husband) and can you guess what he said?


Oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies! Why that's all the best cookies rolled into one! Of course they are going to be great!" And they really were. Moist and crunchy, salty and sweet, how could I have doubted their inherent perfection? I used low fat (ha ha, you do what you can) crunchy peanut butter and ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips and cut the recipe in half. I need 60 cookies like I need a hole in my head. These cookies will definitely make future appearances in my cookie jar!

tee hee, I halved the recipe as well. There was no way my waistline could've coped with 60 cookies right now! Wise move, these cookies were gorgeous.

I made the full recipe because I was going to bring them to an event. Then I brought them to another gathering. And I have enough in the freezer to share again. That's a lot of cookies. They are good, though...

And I'm with you on the half-batch, sister.

Wish I'd made a half-batch. I keep eating them!

Funny, I really never think of doing the half batch thing when it comes to cookies. I want them all. It's a bad habit. Your cookies look wonderful
