Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters - Tuesdays with Dorie


The title says it all. These are a pleasure to make, the sort of cookie one could make if unannounced guests arrived. I took Dorie's advice and used the Skippy Super Chunk Peanut Butter. I also halved the recipe as it seemed to make an awful lot with the full portion ingredients.

I've been eating like a pig the whole Labor Day weekend so I am avoiding tasting one now - they have just come out of the oven (9:10PM). I will take them to work tomorrow and test one there with everyone else - if they get a five star rating I'll add them to my cookies for the Troops list. The great choice for this week is by Stefany of Proceed with Caution. See Stefany's blog for the recipe.

Later - Amazing how one's appetite can perk up when waking up very early in the morning. I needed a cup of tea so had to have a snack as well. These cookies are good, really good. Next time, just on a personal taste basis, I will use semi-sweet chocolate chips and quick cooking (not instant) oats, which give a closer texture. I'm photographing the pics now so I can put the cookies away and have some left to take to my co-workers.

LOL, I was baking late into the night last night too. Tuesday's sneak up on me sometimes.

Anyway, they look fantastic!

Beautiful cookies! Glad you liked them. I think they'd make good cookies for the troops. Your proposed changes make sense.

Your cookies look really good. I was going to go with half a batch as I could tell it would make a lot of them, but then I figured with two teenage boys in the house, the half batch would definitely not be enough! Heaven help me...I have no idea what will happen when they go off to college...lots of care packages, I think. These were good...yours look really good!
