Phew! What a long name for such a jam-packed little cookie! These things have everything in them - chocolate, peanut butter, oatmeal, butter, sugar, eggs... Definitely an after-school snack type of cookie. I can just imagine these with a tall glass of milk. I wonder if Stefany was thinking the same thing when she picked them for TWD this week.
In fact, all I can do is imagine them. You see, I halved the recipe and brought them in to work, thinking I'd grab one later on in the morning (I tend to put things out right when I get in at 7). But by the time I wandered back to where we place our treats, they were all gone! That's right, all that was left was the container I brought them in. That, and an email from a coworker with a subject line of "Evil Cookie Maker." That's right, I get scolded for bringing cookies in to work! I'm blaming this on you, Stefany.
The only odd comment I got on these was that the peanut butter wasn't very prominent. I think the next time, I'd lower the amount of butter and up the peanut butter content, maybe make it a crunchy PB. This is definitely a cookie that combines all the wonderful things of three different cookies into one. Always a good thing, because it means I don't have to eat three cookies now - just one! Not that that would keep me from eating three of these...
