Special Oatmeal Chip Cookies Recipe

My son dubbed these "the cookie" after just one taste, and they've become my signature cookie since then. I haven't shared my "secret" recipe until now. —Carol Poskie, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:33 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • DRIZZLE:
  • 1 cup white candy coating, melted
  • 1 cup dark chocolate candy coating, melted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • 2. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets; flatten to 1/2-in. thickness. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • 3. Drizzle with white coating in one direction, then with dark coating in the opposite direction to form a crisscross pattern. Yield: about 5-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.
