Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies

Who doesn’t like peanut butter cookies? I think, unless you are allergic, pretty much no one right?

So here you have it. I just started making cookies since we are in December, after all it is cookie month right? I don’t know how many different cookies I will be making because to be honest there are way to many other things that I would like to bake as well. I figured I will try to post at least a couple more, will see how it goes.

These cookies remind me a little bit of this ones that I used to eat when I used to live in England, it brings back some memories. There its where I really started baking and where my baking obsession really took form :-) I really loved my time in England, I miss it. Maybe I will visit some day with my family, heck my sister lives there on and off…….

Anyhow, I hope you like these because they sure are perfect with a glass of milk.


Make sure you really pay attention to them. They need no more than 8-9 minutes max. I baked mine for 10 and kind of got toasted a bit too much for my taste so watch out for yours.
