Chunky Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies.....

I love cookies!!! Who doesn't and it's easy to find homes for them, so I had no problem with a recipe that made 60 cookies. The only problem I had with this weeks recipe was I forgot to take pictures of the final plate of cookies and now they are all GONE. I do have some in progress pictures, but that's it, sorry. Instead of 9 ounces of chopped chocolate I used 4.5 ounces of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and 4.5 ounces of Skor Toffee Bits. The two flavors went well with the oatmeal and peanut butter; I will make these again with ALL toffee bits because I really like the taste of toffee or caramel. Don't get me wrong and please don't send hate mail, lol, but I don't eat a lot of chocolate; I know weird!

Here they are ready for the oven, again I used a #40 portioning scoop and got 60 cookies. A portioning scoop or disher really makes it easy to make perfectly sized cookies! I let the dough cool for 2 hours in the refrigerator and did not pat down, they came out perfect, slightly crisp on the edges and chewy in the middle. Thank you for a great pick to Stefany of Proceed with Caution.

I had leftover toffee bits from last week's torte, and almost used them. Darn, now I wish I had... Your cookies-in-progress look great, and thanks for the helpful tips.
