These Oatmeal Raisin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are a yummy sweet and salty treat with lots of texture. Make a batch of these cookies and share them with the ones you love.
Eric and I made it back from Indian Rocks Beach yesterday afternoon. After work on Friday we drove over to his family’s beach house at Indian Rocks which is just a little outside of Tampa by Clearwater, Florida.
On Saturday we spent most of the day on the beach and outside on the deck at the house. We had good quality time with Eric’s sisters, brother, spouses, nephew, mom and dad. And we took the little Pearl girl too because our usual cat sitter was not available. It was a full house this weekend! It’s always nice to be reunited with family and to have a little weekend getaway.
Since we just moved into a new neighborhood, we’ve been wanting to get to know the neighbors. So I decided a fun way to meet the neighbors would be with a delicious stack of chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate chip cookies are one of my go to desserts. I know my favorite cookie recipe by heart and I’ve adapted these cookies to get a taste of that classic oatmeal cookie flavor. I hope you love it as much as we do!
Make these cookies to share with the ones you love and to share with new friends too!
