Tips for Success:
- Flavor Profile: These tasty treats are full of peanut butter yumminess with a generous sprinkling of mini chocolate chips inside. These cookies are light, slightly crispy, and a tiny bit dry. They are perfect with a cup of coffee or a spot of tea.
- Cookie Formation: We used a small cookie scoop. We filled the cookie scoop with the cookie dough and then flattened it hard against the side of the bowl (removing any excess dough). This method helps compact the dough to create a tight cohesive cookie dough and then drop them onto the baking sheet. Once we had used up all the cookie dough and dropped it on the baking sheet, we then took each dough ‘ball’ and cleaned up the sides to create a nicely shaped cookie. The cookie dough was flat on the bottom and dome-shaped on top. Our cookies resembled a tightly-packed gumdrop before going in the oven. The cookie dough does not spread.
- Pretty Cookies: If prettiness is a priority, then clean up any stray edges of cookie dough before going into the oven. You could also achieve the same by picking up and rolling the dough balls tightly in your damp hands to create a tight cohesive ball. Wash your hands between every 4 to 5 cookies as the cookie dough is sticky.
- Cookie Scoop: We used a small cookie scoop (1 ½ inches in diameter). This helped keep the cookies uniform.
- Mini Chocolate Chips: Mini chocolate chips work best for this cookie. Regular-sized chocolate chips are too big and could potentially make the cookies crack and fall apart.
Leftovers and Freezing:
Leftovers will generally keep 5 days stored in an air-tight container.
These cookies freeze well.
- Rolled Oats: Use whole grain rolled oats, not instant oats. We used Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats (Whole Grain).
- Chocolate Chips: We used Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips. Feel free to use your favorite chocolate chips.
- Sea Salt: Please adjust the sea salt based upon your family’s sea salt preferences and/or based upon dietary needs.
- Large baking sheet (14 x 20)
- Small cookie scoop (optional)
- Silicone baking pads (or parchment paper)
