I decided I really needed to post some oatmeal cookies today since their "healthiness" offsets all those Girl Scout cookies you've been eating.
I mean, I've been eating.
(For breakfast, lunch, and dinner actually, but who's counting?)
Also since when are Peanut Butter Patties, in fact called "Tagalongs"? Doesn't "Peanut Butter Patties" make so much more sense? What the hey is a tagalong anyways??
Reese's Pieces Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe from Mom on Timeout
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 Tbsp vanilla
-2 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats (You can use regular oats and just whirl them in the food processor a few times, but don't pulverize)
-1 1/2 cups flour*
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1 cup Reese's Pieces
-1/2 cup Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
Cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and beat until combined.
Whisk together oats, flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl and add in increments to butter/sugar mixture.
Stir in the Reese's Pieces and peanut butter chips. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
Bake Tbsp-sized balls at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
*I skimped a bit on my oats and my first sheet of cookies came out flat, so I stirred in 2.5 Tbsp extra flour and the rest of my cookies came out great. If you use the full amount of oats this probably isn't necessary, but if your cookies come out flat, keep this in mind.
