I have been thinking that I should change the title of this blog to “All the Recipes You Can Make with Chocolate and Peanut Butter” because seriously, it is beginning to be a problem. It is all I ever want to bake! I think about trying something challenging or different but as soon as I open that cupboard the chocolate chips look so happy next to that big jar of PB…I can’t control myself. So, here is another cookie involving Peanut Butter and Chocolate chips, except this time with oatmeal for good measure.
Who could resist that? Look how delicious the peanut butter looks sitting there with all the sugar. Mmm, heaven.
I also recently was given a gift of some real, gourment Mexian vanilla, from a lovely family who spoil me way too much! I have never baked with real vanilla, I am always too poor to shell out the big bucks. But this may change the way I bake! I was so excited to try it.
Check out that dough. Doesn’t it look amazing? I bet it tastes good even before baking, not that I would know. I swear.
I put the dough in the fridge before scooping them out, a habit I am developing because I love what it does to the cookies.
This is how they turned out! Amazng. They don’t look like peanut butter cookies so it is a pleasant surprise when you bite into one! And I got to use these amazing chocolate chips from Bulk Barn that I will be talking more about in my next post. They are soooo good and not even that expensive!
Please try these cookies! Make sure to undercook them a little, if you are like me and enjoy that sort of thing.
