Are you surviving the snow?
We made you cookies to make things better, because we know that as Victorians, we only like to see this stuff once every 10 years. Unless, there is so much snow that it results in a snow day. If that's the case, then bring on the snow! But we digress...
Let's talk about everything that's going on in these cookies! We've got peanut butter, chocolate and oatmeal all thrown in to make one yummy concotion. This is a great recipe for when you can't decide what type of cookie to make, and want the best of all three worlds.
You'll be able to whip them up quickly so you're able to satisfy your cookie cravings without too much work or time attached.
First, the butter and sugars are creamed together and then you add in your peanut butter, an egg, and a dash of vanilla. Once everything is light and fluffy it's time to mix in your dry ingredients, the oatmeal, and chocolate chips.
After around 10 minutes in the oven you'll be pulling out soft, thick, and chewy cookies loaded with peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oatmeal. It's a win-win, and win situation!
