Peanut Butter Oatmeal Rounds

This is an interesting post (to me anyway)! I started this blog essentially to be able to look back on recipes I've made and understand problems I had, ways I dealt with those problems and how the recipes came out so that I could try to make all my recipes better in the future. Well on my new journey through my favorite cookie recipe book I have come to the third recipe and it is one that I've, not only made before, but posted on! I didn't remember that I had posted on these previously until after I had completed them this time around and I was compelled to look back to see what I had thought before. So, the first time I wrote about these cookies I thought they were absolutely terrible! Of course, to be fair, it appears as though I MAY have added too much flour that time. Anyhow, SOMETHING had to have gone awry last time because now these may just be my favorite cookies. The only thing I purposefully changed about this recipe is that I used mini chips instead of full sized ones. I like the smaller pieces of chocolate because the flavor and meltiness is more evenly distributed instead of the large gooey pieces that tend to overwhelm the other cookie flavors. If you like chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, and oatmeal cookies, these cookies are clearly the end-all be-all. I couldn't find the BH&G authorized recipe online, but if you google the post name with Better Homes and Gardens you *might* just find it somewhere.
