Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of peanut butter cookies. Part of what I love most about cookie recipes using peanut butter is the fact that I always have a jar of my favorite PLANTERS creamy peanut butter in my pantry. Always!

This particular cookie recipe is one that I found in an old magazine and just knew I had to try. While they don’t actually have peanut butter in the title, their great flavor has a lot to do with the 1 cup of peanut butter in the dough!

I adore easy cookie recipes, especially during the holidays when everything is rush, rush, rush.

I mean, just look at these beauties and tell me you’re not tempted to hop in the kitchen and make a batch right now!
