This recipe has been my go to Chocolate Chip Cookie quite some time now. I always tweak the recipe for us, but I never seem to manage to write down my changes. I think I am usually to excited for them to come out of the oven to bother writing down what it is I do! I finally I have my recipe documented and preserved.
This cookie is simply the perfect cookie... Oatmeal... Peanut Butter... And Chocolate Chips.. Perfection in a bowl! Even my truckin' man requests these. This weekend when he saw the cookies in the oven, and wanted to know if it was the "good ones"? He doesn't always have rave reviews when I try a new recipe, so he is happy when I make these. Even after he sat down with his cookie from the last batch, I heard "Wow" from the other room. I figured he was "wowing" the new episode of Pawn Stars or Storage Wars, but he was "wowing" the cookie. That is success in my book :)
