OMG Oatmeal Cookies!!

What better way to follow up a post about dental hygiene than with a recipe for a sugary treat? These cookies are INCREDIBLE. Make them, eat them, love them.

1 c. butter
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet mini choc. chips

Cream butter, peanut butter, vanilla and sugars. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Combine oats, flour, soda and salt. Once mixed, add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into 1" balls, place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 400* for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool a moment on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire cooling rack. Makes about 5 dozen. Eat, share, enjoy!!

(Thanks, Mom!)

Looks like they'll keep me in business...:)

Hey, when your trip to Denmark is over, you should put a new countdown on your blog called "Countdown To When This Countdown Ends." That would just be silly.

Coolest wv yet: hoddi, as in, "Yes, Troy, we know you are a hoddi."

Does this mean you have a couple extra dozen cookies to share?

I recommend using parchment paper on the cookie sheet. You can use one sheet of paper per cookie sheet for the whole batch and it is easier than greasing the cookie sheet. These are great cookies!

I left out the parchment bit 'cause it didn't work for me (my oven started smoking?). But I might just have some sort of baking handicap.
