It's not often I find these at the store:
I don't know why, I must be shopping at all the wrong places. So when I find them, I buy. Then I go home, and I bake. I want to perfect a peanut butter cookie recipe, and I came close today! Oatmeal. Honey. Cinnamon sugar. Shortening. Who said what?! Yes, I said shortening. I knoooooooow, it's like a tub of lard. But tubs of lard make things taste good, so I threw a small amount in there. These are soft and very peanut buttery-y. Please enjoy.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup peanut butter
1 T honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 bag peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter and shortening together.
Add sugars and cream together until smooth.
Add egg and egg yolk and mix until combined.
Add peanut butter, honey and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until a dough is formed.
Stir in oatmeal and peanut butter chips.
In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Form dough into golf ball-sized balls. Roll in cinnamon sugar and place on baking sheet.
Take a fork and press into each cookie.
Bake for 8 minutes. I always remove my cookies when they look slightly underdone, to poison people. Nooo. They will continue to cook once removed, and this makes for a soft cookie.
