Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters

Peanut Butter + Oatmeal + Chocolate...how could you possibly go wrong with that combination? This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was picked by Proceed with Caution, selecting these glorious cookies. The yield on the recipe is pretty large, making about 60 cookies, so I'm sure I'll have them stored around in the freezer for a long time.

I brought a batch of these to a Labor Day BBQ this weekend, and everyone loved them. Well, these and the malted cookies from next week's recipe (figured I'd just make both batches at once since it was a long weekend). They were gone a lot faster than the store-bought desserts - always a good sign.

Nothing fancy with presentation when it comes to these, though. Dorie herself admits that they're usually served by themselves, but if accompanied by some vanilla ice cream I'm sure nobody would complain.

Beautiful cookies!

They look great. And I can understand how they would go before the store bought desserts. It really always surprises me how impressed people are when I tell them I made something. Sort of sad in a way, too. Anyway, great job!
