It was a blustery 26 degrees when I woke up this morning! That is COLD for Atlanta. 26 degrees people! Last winter when it got down to 9 degrees it just about sent all of Georgia into a state-wide snow induced panic - let us not forget snowpocalypse 2014.
By this afternoon, temperatures will probably be back into the 60's so no need for statewide panic but I am going to advantage of the cool morning temperatures as an opportunity to warm myself up in front of a warm oven. As long as I'm there, I might as well bake a batch of cookies too.
Warm cookies on a cool morning sounds like a great idea.
This batch of peanut butter monster cookies are sure to warm you up from the inside out.
Peanut Butter Monster Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 and 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.
Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes, meanwhile preheating oven to 350 degrees (F).
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Bake, six at a time, for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to darken.
Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes.
Forget the cold milk this morning, I'm having my cookie with a cup of hot tea.
