Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies

December 13, 2013Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies are so delicious. Oatmeal cookies are spruced up with Reese’s peanut butter chips and walnuts. Yum. These cookies do not have peanut butter in the batter — only in the peanut butter chips themselves. They are sweet, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. And, if you love peanut butter, a great peanut butter fix!

In 1984 we acquired our first home computer. (Doesn’t that sound ancient!) I typed all my recipes into our little Epsom computer. A very good friend asked me to do the same. She is someone who has shared more recipes with me than anyone else. So I typed all her recipes into the computer, too, as a separate cookbook.

We had young kids then so I typed during nap times or in the evenings when they went to bed. (Hallelujah for early bedtimes!)  I printed out these cookbook recipes on an old daisy-wheel printer and put the pages in 3-ring binders. I ended up printing up a copy of my cookbook and Mimi’s cookbook for EACH of us. That way, we have enjoyed many of each other’s recipes over the years. I finally learned after many spatters on the recipe pages to enclose each page in a plastic sheet protector to protect them. 🙁

Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies was one of the recipes I typed into Mimi’s cookbook back in those days. Both of us had hundreds of recipes by then. I can only assume we have thousands now. The recipe page has a few spatters on it from when I’ve mixed ingredients and dropped gunk on the pages. But it’s still readable and certainly makable. I remember the first time I made this recipe. I just loved its consistency, texture, and rich peanut butter taste. Yum.

If you’re looking for an oatmeal cookie recipe with a little different spin, then consider these delicious Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies. They don’t overwhelm you with peanut butter. There’s just enough peanut butter flavor from the chips to be fantastic but not to overdo it. I included Peanut Butter Chip Oatmeal Cookies in our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. Boy, is everyone in for a treat!

Soften butter. Add it to a large mixing bowl with Crisco shortening. Add brown sugar and eggs. Add salt, baking soda, vanilla and milk. Mix with an electric mixer to combine.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the pictures. I was making 6 batches of this recipe.

Add UNBLEACHED all purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add oatmeal, peanut butter chips, and finely diced walnuts. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Yeah, it took me a few minutes to combine this mammoth amount of cookie dough!

Grease cookie sheets or spray with cooking spray. Roll cookies into balls and place on cookie sheets. Bake at 375 about 10-12 minutes or until done. You may have to keep your hands moist while rolling if the dough sticks to your fingers too much.
