Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Somethin' a little different than a typical chocolate chip cookie
These are the cookies we enjoyed for our "Parisian" picnic to celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary. They're soft, chewy, peanut buttery and sweet...we'll definitely be making them again!


1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 325F. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt together the butter and peanut butter. Add the sugars to the peanut butter mixture and stir. Let cool a few minutes before adding the egg and yolk (can place in the freezer for a few minutes to speed it up). Mix, and add the vanilla extract. Add the flour, oats and baking soda and stir. Fold in the chocolate and peanut butter chips. Place golf ball sized cookies on to a cookie sheet, about two inches apart. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, cool slightly and place on a cooling rack.
Thanks to Averie Cooks for the recipe inspiration!
