Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters (TWD)

Is it really Labor Day already? Where has my summer gone... in the kitchen perhaps? Anyways, as my weekend is jam packed, this post is going to be brief. This week's Tuesdays With Dorie selection, Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters (is that a mouthful or what), comes to us courtesy of Stefany of Proceed With Caution.

(BTW, these cookies were sent to a special group of people, which I wrote about here.)
I definitely second Dorie's recommendation for chilling the dough overnight. Freshly mixed, the dough was sticky and a little difficult to handle. Chilled overnight, the dough had a nice consistency to create uniformly shaped drop cookies.

Fresh from the oven, these cookies retained a nice chunky look.

I had one cookie (not a big PB dessert fan), and...

my DH enjoyed a stack of them!

The oatmeal provided a nice bite and texture, and the cookie imparted a balanced amount of peanut and chocolate flavors. I'm not sure if I will repeat this recipe (the Granola Grabbers was much more to my liking). Still, if you're a PB and chocolate fan, this cookie should satisfy your craving.

For the recipe, visit Stefany's site. To see how my fellow 250+ bakers did, visit the TWD blogroll.

Like you I am not a PB fan, though I have been known to have a PBJ sandwich on occasion. I am an oatmeal fan though so these look good to me. Great photos, btw.

I did like these chunky cookies, but I wasn't head over heels about them. Luckily, my boyfriend works for computer games company and those boys love cookies!
