Recipe: Snow Day Cookies

I first made these cookies while trapped in our building due to a 40-inch snowstorm. While we waited for the plows, the residents turned the lobby into a party spot with food to nibble and lots of visiting – very unusual for us on a regular day. Found this recipe online using things I had in the pantry. Voila – Snow Day Cookies to share.

1 C. butter
1 C. white sugar
2/3 C. packed brown sugar
1 C. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 C. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 C. oats
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and eggs and mix until well blended.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt. Gradually add to peanut butter mixture until moistened.
Mix in oats and chocolate chips. Can drop on sheet or use cookie scoop. Lightly flatten with fingers before baking.

Bake on greased cookie sheets in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes (my oven bakes at 10 1/2 min). Transfer carefully to wire rack to cool completely.
