Tuesdays With Dorie: Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters


This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe, Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters chosen by Stefany of Proceed with Caution, is good. That's it. Just good. Not amazing, not a must-bake. It makes the grade, but I don't find myself craving it as I normally do with Dorie recipes.

Oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate chips is a good start to any cookie recipe, and the cookies' hint of cinnamon and nutmeg adds that unexpected twist that Dorie always seems to think of. So I'm not sure why I'm not loving these cookies. I'm just not.

How did you like the recipe, for my TWD visitors?

I won't be able to visit your blogs til later in the week; I'm currently taking a vacation day from work and spending time with my boyfriend, who just returned from Italy yesterday--the beauty of scheduled posting--but I can't wait to see how everyone's turned out. Maybe someone else thought of a creative twist to take these cookies beyond "just good."

i really liked the twist of the spices, it really set these cookies apart from just being ok for me. it was one of my favorites so far. it's been interesting to see all the varying opinions on these.

I am with you.

They were ok.

They didn't make me think that I wasted my ingredients, but I won't make them again.

Mmmm.. just returned from Italy. I miss Italy! Those cookies look great! Sorry you weren't such a fan!

I enjoyed these cookies! They are great when you need a big batch for sure. I hope you are enjoying your time with your boyfriend!

Glad you enjoyed them even if they are not on your A list.

These were just okay for me. I still ate them, but it wasn't like I couldn't stop myself. Know what I mean? They look great, though.

I'm with you. Not loving them, although that didn't stop me from eating my fair share, lol. I made the chocolate whopper cookies for next week and I like those bunches more.

I agree with you - I was not bowled over by these cookies. But they were good. I've served them to three different groups (BIG batch!), and each time I've had some (in addition to baking day, of course!) and I enjoyed them. They do well in the freezer, btw.

I also didn't love the chocolate malted cookies, but I have high hopes for the Chocolate Chunkers!

We weren't crazy about these either. There were too many different flavors. But we enjoyed eating them anyway!
