Jumbo Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters

Whew. I am tired just typing the name of these cookies. This was my first official Tuesdays with Dorie post. I would like to give Stefany from Proceed With Caution a big round of applause for picking this recipe. These cookies have a bit of everything in them. The cookie dough is delicious. The baked cookie is gooey and moist. The only downside, and it was a fault of my own, is that I ran out of milk halfway through my first cookie. BIG mistake. These are perfect with a tall glass of milk. Or, in my case, a shot of milk.

According to the TWD rules, we are not supposed to post any recipes. That way, we encourage people to buy the book, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. I encourage you to check out the website and look at the other baker's blogs. Also, you can find the recipe on Stefany's website, if you must. And, I think you should.

I basically followed the directions for these. I used chunky peanut butter and halved the recipe. I also chilled the dough for about 24 hours. I've read that for some people, this didn't work well. However, mine turned out great. I also made my cookies a bit larger, hence the Jumbo added to the title. That left me with about 12 big cookies. Perfect for ice cream sammiches, which I plan on making right now!

  9. Hi VB,

    I'm also new to TWD. I was going to make ice cream sandwiches with my chipsters but we ate so many cookies that I ended up with open face sandwiches topped with ice cream and banana rum sauce.
