Since I went home for the mini holiday break, I took advantage and baked the next two Tuesdays With Dorie challenges. This week’s recipe was Dorie’s Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters. I was pretty excited because this is one of the first recipes that caught my eye when I first got the book. I cut the recipe in half because I was baking cookies all weekend. Then I froze half of those to snack on throughout the semester. A lot of the bakers (including myself) complained that there isn’t enough peanut butter flavor. In fact, I tasted the cinnamon before the peanut butter. I love peanut butter cookies, so next time I’d increase the PB and cut back on the cinnamon. Some even used peanut butter chips. I found that mine spread a lot (because of the margarine, perhaps?), so I only baked 9 per tray.
They remind me of oatmeal raisin cookies but with peanut butter and chocolate chips instead of raisins.
