Stay at Home Cookies

So this is based of a recipe that I pulled out of a magazine years ago and had never gotten around to trying it. As we’re all in lockdown, for the most part, it’s a perfect time to give it a try. This cookie has a lot going on. I did mix it up a little, used creamy peanut butter instead of chunky and added the butterscotch chips. They’re delicious, the butterscotch really comes through and the oats add a nice bite. Be warned, they’re a little crumbly. Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I use semisweet)
  • 1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350º and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In your stand mixer cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the peanut butter until smooth. Add in the eggs one at a time until smooth, you probably need to scrape down the sides at least once. Add in the vanilla. Turn the mixer down to low and gradually add the flour mixture until just combined. Add in the oats next and just beat until combined. With a spatula fold in the chocolate and butterscotch chips.

Drop a generous tablespoon of dough onto your cookie sheet, about 2″ apart. Back for 12-15 minutes or until you just start to see the edges turn golden brown.  Allow to cool and then devour.
