TWD: Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters

Last week I joined the baking club called Tuesdays with Dorie. Each week the club is going to bake our way through the cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. This week's recipe (my first) was the Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters chosen by Stefany of Proceed with Caution.

This was a super fast and easy dough to put together. I had all of the ingredients in my pantry, which was even better. I did make one modification though. Since I only had creamy peanut butter on hand and the recipe called for chunky, I added a half cup chopped roasted peanuts to the mix. The cookies came out great and are delicious. The oatmeal and the peanuts give them a great crunch, and yet they're chewy at the same time. They would be great with a glass of milk. Sadly, I have no milk in the house. note to self: buy milk tomorrow

I chilled the dough for about three hours before baking as recommended. Some bakers didn't chill their dough and their cookies came out flat. Others who didn't chill the dough said theirs came out fine. I wanted to make sure I didn't end up with flat cookies, so into the chiller it went.

I will definitely be making these cookies again!

Cookies are always good to have around and they are so easy! Welcome to TWD, by the way. Your cookies look fabulous.

Welcome! Your cookies have the perfect 'fluff' factor - I'm glad you like them. I used creamy pb and no added nuts. It's a very forgiving recipe, thank goodness.

I'm new to TWD as well--just wanted to say hi! Your cookies came out great!

I see you're into knitting too--I'm a novice still, have only done a scarf and a blanket--but am trying to be more brave! I do it in fits of stops and starts, but have been feeling the itch to start up a new project! Maybe socks?!
