Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters-Tuesdays with Dorie

Print Friendly and PDF
With the Labor Day weekend being our last big holiday of the summer, the Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters that Stefany over at Proceed With Caution selected for her Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was a perfect cookie for our boating picnic on Saturday. I made and photographed mine before going to visit our daughter and family near Chattanooga, Tennessee. The cookies were nearly gone before we left for the hour trip to Center Hill Lake where the water is deep, cool, crystal clear and the trees and craggy mountain tops rise to the sky.

I didn't play around much with this recipe, but did add unsalted peanuts to enhance the chunky peanut butter taste. I was pleased with the extra crunch the peanuts gave to the cookie. If you are looking for cookie that most everyone would like, these cookies will fill the bill. Just put them in a cookie jar as Dorie suggests and they will disappear very quickly. You can get the recipe from Stefany's blog or better still, buy Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking From My Home to Yours". It's an overall great book with recipes that will be classics in your family.

A short post this Tuesday as I am off to Savannah to "batten down the hatches" at our weekend home in preparation for Hurricane Hanna and very much hoping that she will pass us by and not jeopardize our trip to Southern England this coming Monday.
