My husband will love these. He’s already lamented the lack of peanut butter in our holiday cookies this year. I’ve made homemade Oreos before, and these might have to be my next step on the homemade-is-better-than-commercial train. Thanks!!
It’s nearly 2 a.m. but instead of winding down for the evening, all I can think of is how much I want to whip up a batch of these scrumptious-looking cookies!!! Thanks for posting this recipe and I look forward to trying it for myself. I’ve recently discovered your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts!
Love these!! I did use old fashioned oats due to the fact that I did not have quick oats and I cannot imagine them being any better. I did enjoy them cool and the next day, more. Thanks for another fun recipe!!
These look amazingly delicious….so happy to see they are from Nancy’s book (that I have not pulled out in ages and need to!) Also, delighted to find your blog in my search for a terrific peanut butter cookie! Cheers.
A friend of mine just made these for my birthday today because I love peanut butter and they are DELISH!!! Of course I got the recipe from her and am sure my son and I will be devouring them by the weekend. :~)
Just made these over the weekend for a Memorial Day picnic and they were amazing! I always try to find something a little different from the standard dessert options (chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes etc.). I think the toasted oats really added depth to the flavor. Even my picky mother in law loved them! Thanks for sharing and keep the good stuff coming!
These are delicious! I do have a question, though – mine were extremely crumbly (the first batch fell apart on the cookie sheet after baking) and I added some heavy cream to half the batch after the failure of the first half and they were still super fragile and many broke. Any thoughts? The only variation I had from your recipe (until I added some cream) was that I used old fashioned oats. Thanks!
Hey Darcy! I think using old-fashioned oats would make a big difference. The quick cooking break down faster and are more incorporated into the dough when baked. But that being said, these cookies are a bit fragile, especially right out of the oven. I always wait a few minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool. The longer they sit, the sturdier they become. Thanks for checking in on these and better luck next time!
