today was a rainy and kind of chilly day, so i decided to stay in and bake some cookies before work. i didn't want to go out and buy ingredients, so i worked with what i had and came up with delicious peanut butter oatmeal cookies.
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats (regular or quick-cooking)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup peanut butter (crunchy or regular)
preheat oven to 350 degrees. line baking sheet with parchment paper. in medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda and salt. in a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars. beat in egg and vanilla until smooth, then beat in peanut butter. blend in the flour mixture until the dough comes together.
drop dough in 1-inch balls on the parchment paper. bake in oven for 11-13 minutes.
allow to cool by transferring to a wire rack. enjoy!
