Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are melt in your mouth peanut butter cookies. Even though they have oatmeal in them for added texture they still melt in your mouth. PB and chocolate is the greatest combo so why not add another element of the oatmeal cookie, bingo, crunchy around the edges yet with a soft center. Great for a rainy day!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter and peanut butter. Add brown sugar and mix until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix together until totally blended. Whisk flour and baking soda together and add to wet mixture and mix until blended. Add chocolate chips.
I use a tablespoon size scoop and then flatten slightly with a fork. Flattening with a fork makes the cookies the right shape because otherwise they will end up with a dome shape and to soft in the center.
Bake on 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool for five minutes on pan (cookies are delicate) and then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
Makes 2 dozen.
