Please Don't Hate Me For This.
Behold. The pinnacle of yumminess. Bask in its splendor. This, my friends, is a Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie and it will be your undoing. It isn't just good. It possesses the power to incite a grown man to try and take a cookie from his own baby (N.). Observe.
I know you are waiting with bated breath to find out just how to make this cookie for yourself. I will keep you in suspense no longer. This recipe was submitted by Susan to the Best Bites in Paradise cookbook put together by Dr. Jesse Ehrlich of Venice, Florida. I love you Susan.
18 oz. chunky peanut butter
1 stick butter
1-1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
6 c. oats
2-1/2 tsp baking soda
6 oz. chocolate chips (I use 12 oz.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together peanut butter and softened butter. Add sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Stir in oats, baking soda, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 9 to 10 minutes.
This recipe will provide you with a copious cache of cookies. I imagine the dough would freeze well if you don't have an hour or six to bake cookies.
All that's left to do now is bite....
