Oatmeal chocolate chip drop cookies




Today I decided to bake some cookies. I opened up my cookie cookbook and turned to a neat recipe that I customized based on my liking. 
If I were to bake these cookies again, I'd divide the recipe in half because I was able to make 3 dozen cookies and that's a lot. I also wouldn't add the cinnamon again because it's pretty noticeable in the cookies. Here's the recipe: 

Ingredients 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 cups regular or quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and peanut butter on high for 30 seconds
  3. Add sugars, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, beating ingredients in. 
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla
  5. Slowly add in the flour
  6. Stir in oats and chocolate chips 
  7. Place balls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes 
  9. Cool for 2 minutes
