TWD: Redeeming myself


After my slight mishap with the TWD cookie pick 2 weeks ago, I was eager to redeem myself with this week's choice - Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters. This was particularly so given my new found love affair with all things peanut butter, which started with a heavenly peanut butter dessert that I had while on honeymoon in Bhutan and was further spurred on by a peanut butter torte which I made several weeks ago.

Having been on vacation the whole of last week, I had to hurriedly whip together this recipe on Monday night after getting back from work. Slightly taken aback by the large quantity of cookies the recipe makes (60 cookies!), I decided to half it to make a much more manageable 30 instead.

All the while that the cookies were in the oven, I could smell the peanut butter aroma wafting through the kitchen and, indeed, the entire apartment. Try as hard as I might to resist eating them, I just had to pop one into my mouth while it was fresh from the oven. I thought the cookie was good, but personally, I found the nutmeg to be slightly overpowering. The granola grabbers from 2 weeks ago is still the winning cookie recipe for me although I think next week's pick of Chocolate Whopper Malted Drops may give it a good run for its money. Stay tuned to see which recipe will be the ultimate winner!

Your Chipsters look very yummy, I took them all to work and have about 5 cookies left!!

My blog about the cookies will be up later tonight as I'm at work at the moment (taking a short coffee break to look at all my fellow TWD-bloggers) and have a birthday later tonight.

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes, simply for the aroma of the cinnamon. Your cookies look fantastic all piled on the plate. Very inviting. I have also been enjoying your blog!

Lovely cookies! I'll be interested to see which of the three cookies you like best. So far I'm with this week's Peanut Butter cookies.

I have to agree with you. I could not keep my hands of the Granola Grabbers, and these were just okay for me. I still kept eating them, though! Yours look really great.
