My son’s new favorite word is “cookie”!!! I’m not even 100% sure he actually knows what he is saying and what it means. But…his repetitiveness caused me to have cookies on my mind!
The recipe below was originally intended to be made as individual cookies, but I wanted to make it a little different. Also, this is another recipe you can make your own, adding and changing to what suits you!
Oh…and I accidentally made a mistake when I was making these. I forgot to add the 2 teaspoons of vanilla that the original recipe called for. And thankfully, it did not matter.
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar (I used Splenda sugar blend, 1/4 cup)
1 egg + 1 yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract (unless you forget it, like I did!!)
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned whole oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 c white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or another type of nut, butterscotch chips, etc.)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and peanut butter together over low-medium heat.
Add the brown & white sugar to the melted butter & peanut butter mixture and stir. Pour into a bowl, and Set it in the freezer for a couple minutes (I let it in there about 5-10 minutes. You want it to cool before adding the eggs.)
Remove from the freezer and add the egg + yolk , add the vanilla extract (if you want…LOL!) and stir to combine.
In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda, and walnuts.
Add the white chocolate chips and stir.
Pour cookie dough into a greased 8×8 glass baking dish. Flatten and smooth to help it bake evenly.
Bake at 325 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. Let it cool completely before cutting.
