Outrageous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pic courtesy of

I have been on the hunt for the perfect peanut butter chocolate chip cookie for years. And when I made these the other night I found it. They are the perfect combo of peanut buttery goodness, chocolate, and thick, oatmeal texture. I literally didn't want to stop eating them (to say nothing of the fact that I couldn't stop eating them). They really are that good.

Outrageous Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 c butter
1/2 c white sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c quick oats
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
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. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed. Drop by tablespoonfuls on to lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
