I love peanut butter cookies. My aunt REALLY loves peanut butter cookies. I remember making peanut butter cup cookies for her and she ate quite a few cookies in one sitting.
I was craving cookies since I gave away all the chocolate chip cookies I made. Since I was going to see my aunt today, I might as well make something that we would both enjoy. These fly off the plate so fast.
The only change I made was adding and extra 1/2 cup of peanut butter. I’ve also made these with crunchy peanut butter before and it tastes wonderful like that too.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy will both work)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed. Drop by tablespoonfuls on to lightly greased cookie sheets. (Flatten the cookies because these don’t spread.)
3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 33 cookies
