HUGE Cookies

Last week's Favorite Friday I mentioned these cookies. They're an enormous combination of everyone's favorite cookie (chocolate chip, peanut butter, & oatmeal). Plus they're as easy as making any other cookie and they're super yummy. The special tool that helped me make these huge is a 3 tablespoon scoop - a great tool for baking if you want things to be consistent (I also use this for making cupcakes & muffins).

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip PB Cookies
Note: This is not an original recipe but I can't locate the source at this time!
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg           
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

To make:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg until well blended.
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  4. Using a 3 tablespoon scoop, drop cookies on to lightly greased cookie sheets (or lined with parchment/silpat).
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to brown. (Mine took more like 15 minutes just continue to check them)
  6. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
