Cookie Time Tuesday

Today is the first Cookie Time Tuesday and I'm very excited to share with you all!

My grandmother makes amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies and I think that is why I have such a love for making cookies frequently.  I just love baking them and smelling the yummy scent throughout the house and of course eating a warm cookie is a little piece of heaven.  In my house I can make lots of cookies but my husband and son still just want plain old Chocolate Chip

For the first few weeks of Cookie Time Tuesday I am going to work my way through this Gooseberry Patch Chocolate Chip Cookie cookbook that I downloaded for free to my Kindle.  You can get yours HERE.  There are 25 recipes in the book so I will make something new every week. 

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Oat Cookies
3/4 Cup Butter, softened (I used margarine)
1 Cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 Cup sugar
2 eggs
1/3 Cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 Cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 Cups quick cooking oats, uncooked
1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips)

In a medium bowl, blend together butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs one at a time; stir in peanut butter, water and vanilla.  In a seperate bowl, combine flour and baking soda; stir into butter mixture.  Add remaining ingredients; mix well.  Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 Degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until edges are lightly golden.  Cool on wire racks.  Makes about 3 dozen.
Mix butter and sugars.

Beat in your eggs one at a time

This is after the water, peanut butter, and vanilla is added. 
It's a little "watery" looking but don't worry.

Add the 2 Cups of oats and mix well.

Add in your chocolate chips and stir to combine

You are ready to put them on the baking sheet now.

I use a Silpat mat for my cookies but you could use parchment paper
 or just an ungreased cookie sheet.
You will be so happy with the end result when you use a Silpat mat or parchment paper.

They are delicious!

Do you like the two tiered serving piece? 
Stay tuned because it is a craft project I will be sharing.
