FINALLY TWD...and you didn't think I'd make it


Tuesdays with Dorrie.... my 3rd week.
It is 10:00 p.m. PST. I just finished baking my batch of "Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters" chosen by Stefanie of Proceed with Caution.
Hooray! An easy week....especially since I was gone for a major part of last week.
Easy and tasty.
Ten at night is when we should NOT be eating cookies, but we had to test them. They got the highest praise from my husband Rich who said, "these are good cookies".
I said..."they are Dottie's" and we shared a laugh. Because we are tired and it is late and well, little things amuse us.
(I was going to say that we are old, but really we're not THAT old.)

As usual, I followed the recipe to the tea....WAIT, NO I didn't. I didn't have chunky peanut butter or bittersweet chocolate pieces. So used creamy peanut butter and chocolate chips.
And I didn't cook for 13-15 minutes, but only 10 minutes. They turned out crunchy on the outside, and chewy on the inside...just like I liked them. We live at 4000 ft, so I'm not sure if it's the altitude that makes them overdone if I follow cooking directions or not, but when I cook as directed my cookies are always way too done for me.
So, this is a short post, but I want to go to bed now. I've had my milk and cookies. ~grins~
