Oat-Rageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

SECRET INGREDIENT: peanut butter

Some people like oatmeal cookies. Some like chocolate chip cookies. Yet others prefer peanut butter cookies. This recipe combines all three! The peanut butter in the dough makes them extra rich and delicious.

FACTOID:

To keep your cookies from burning, stack two baking sheets together. This creates a layer of insulation that protects the cookies and promotes more even heating.
