Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was telling Richard this morning that I was thinking about baking some cookies today. He said goodie goodie I would love some cookies. Ok I asked what kind would you like, peanut butter, chocolate chip or oatmeal. He said Oh! That sounds good. I said which one; I was only going to bake just one kind. He said why couldn’t you bake a peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Ok why not, I don’t think I have baked that kind of cookie before so why not give it a try.

I took my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, changed half the shorting for butter, added a cup of peanut butter, and a bag of chocolate chips. As I was scooping the dough on to the baking sheets I tasted a little of the dough. I told Richard that this was going to be a good cookie, because if the dough tasted this good before baking then it would taste even better when baked.
I am giving the credit were the credit is due, to Richard for asking me to bake him a peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Let me add one more thing, I hope you have some milk on hand because you are going to need it. Richard says or a good cup of Joe. He says some people wouldn’t know what that is accept some old people. So for all us young ones out there that would be a cup of coffee.
