Life is starting to slow down a bit, and I’m absolutely loving it. We finally got moved to our sweet cottage in the country. I couldn’t be happier. The views and quietness are perfect.
These pictures are from my front door. Gorgeous right? Anyway, to break in our cozy place of course I had to bake something. It had to be comforting, soft and chewy. So I whipped out my family cookbook and went to town on the first cookie recipe I could find.
These are sooo good. I may have had my share already…
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups instant oats
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350* In a mixer combine sugars and butter and beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda. Mix well. Add peanut butter and chocolate chips and mix. Finally add oats and mix until incorporated. Bake for 13 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges.
These would be excellent with a tall glass of milk and your best buddy by your side. I’m waiting for mine to come home from chores!
Love to all- Nicole
