Cookies of Indecision

I love cookies. Honestly, who doesn't? There is a cookie out there for just about every preference. The most common in popularity are Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, and Peanut Butter. They are the Pepperoni, Cheese, and Hawaiian of the cookie realm. However, you can't order a cookie as half Peanut Butter, half Chocolate Chip. It doesn't work very well. Fortunately we have found a way to get all of your favorite cookies into one. So, whether you are feeling like Peanut Butter, or Chocolate Chip, or Oatmeal, you are covered with this recipe for even the most indecisive of people.

Cookies of Indecision
60-72 Cookies | Total Time: 1 Hour | Apprentice

  • 3/4 cup Butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 pkg Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (10 oz)

Craft: Pre-heat oven to 375°. Beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda, mixing until well combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then flour. Stir in the oats with a wooden spoon until well integrated. Stir in chocolate chips in the same manner. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Repeat the baking process until all dough is baked.  

Strategies: After they have cooled, you can store these cookies in an airtight container and freeze them for up to 1 month and still maintain their deliciousness. Also, if you want a slightly softer, (though not as healthy) cookie, change out half, or even all of the butter for shortening.

  • Peanut Butter $1.63
  • Rolled Oats $0.98
  • Chocolate Chips $1.99
Total Cost: $4.60
Cost Per Serving: $0.19
