TWD: Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters

This week's TWD, Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters, was selected by Stefany of Proceed with Caution. You can find the full recipe by clicking the link to Stefany's blog.

This is the TWD recipe I have been waiting for! A chocolatey, yummy, mmm mmm good cookie!! I love oatmeal cookies. I love peanut butter cookies. I LOVE chocolate cookies. Combine them all together and you have the most.perfect.cookie.ever!

This recipe came together very easily and most of the ingredients are things that everyone has on hand in the pantry on a regular basis as is, so it's a great recipe to just throw together at the last minute. The recipe suggests to let the batter chill in the fridge for about 2 hours before baking, however, I found it easier to just make the cookies right after mixing the batter together. I always use a small ice cream scooper to form my cookies so that they are all uniform in size and bake evenly. I also always bake my cookies on parchment paper and they come out perfectly everytime.

This will definitely become one of my go to cookie recipes. The combination of flavors is wonderful. I thought the cinnamon would be weird with the peanut butter and chocolate, but it had a great flavor and was just enough to be noticable without overpowering.

Another winning Dorie recipe! I can't wait to make everything from Dorie's book. So far, everything has een great. Better than great really, absolutely devine!

They look fabulous. I thought I would like these more. I still ate them, don't get me wrong! :o) Glad you enjoyed them.

I totally agree with everything you had to say from the meshing of 2 amazing cookie flavours to the use of parchment and an icecream scoop. Other than the chocolate chip recipe that HAS to be refrigerated.. I never refrigerate either! I loved these so much I actually had 6.
