Tuesdays With Dorie 8: Chunky Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters



Tuesdays with Dorie again! This week's recipe was chosen by Stefany of Proceed with Caution. These cookies may have the longest name in the world, but they are very simple to make. I quite like making cookies every week, because it doesn't require too much effort if you are busy, but they are so satisfying! For these cookies, I baked a tray of 6, then I put the rest of the dough, rolled into a long, into the freezer. I haven't done that before, but it was great being able to cut off a few cookies when I wanted them, and eat them freshly baked. I found it quite hard to actually cut the cookies off the log though, so I was thinking that next time I'll freeze the cookies already cut into single cookies so I can just put them straight onto the baking tray- no cutting involved! I found these cookies are nice and crispy straight out of the oven, but after a few hours they become a bit soft. So I have really warmed to this idea of freezing the dough. It's also good for the hips because I'm not 'forced' into eating all the cookies at once, while they are at their best.

Overall I enjoyed these cookies- not my favourite but still tasty. The nutmeg really shone through.

i'm really going to have to start freezing stuff too so i don't eat so many cookies at once. i'll try your idea of freezing them already cut.

I actually liked these cookies on the softer side. Yours look beautiful, thin and crispy like lace cookies. :)

Lot of different flavors competing with each other.

I think if even one of the flavors (nutmeg or cinnamon) were left out, they would have been tons better.
