These cookies are a combination of my three favorite cookies-- chocolate chip, oatmeal chocolate chip and peanut butter, hence the name "Triple Threat". I often can not decide which of my favorite cookies to make, so this is the perfect recipe for me. I made these to bring to my Aunt's house and my boyfriend ended up eating half of them!
This recipe comes from BrownEyedBaker. She has some excellent recipes, and this one is a must try! The only changes I made to her recipe were that I refrigerated the dough for 24 hours before baking. I did this mostly because of timing, but it is also supposed to make flavors come together better and it kept the cookies nice and plump instead of flattening out when baked.
Triple Threat Cookies
Makes 20-24 cookies
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/2 creamy natural peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
Cream together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract on medium speed for about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat to combine. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add in the flour and mix until combined. Stir in the oats and the chocolate chips
Refrigerate the dough overnight or for up to 24 hours.
Scoop the dough with a medium cookie scoop (about two tablespoons) onto parchment lined baking sheet about two inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes on baking sheet then move to a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
