Reviews for Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
"Dough not easy to work with. I wanted to use right away. I would recommend adding peanut butter also. Cookies kind of dry."
"i think someone posted the wrong photo with this recipe, it looks like soup instead of cookies... ?"
"I added some peanut butter and baked them immediately. They are delicious!"
"Yummy! I made them for a party and everyone raved about them. FYI ~ If you do not want to freeze the dough, bake each batch at 350 for 11 minutes.~ Theresa"
