Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

So, first off, ‘outrageous’ was part of the title in the cookbook I got this from, it’s not my personal judgement. Secondly, this cookbook was an Amish cookbook, and the Amish don’t seem to mess around with volume of food. I got 79 dough balls out of this and immediately froze them all, to bake over several weeks. You could definitely halve the recipe if that’s a more reasonable amount of cookies for you.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats (I only had old fashioned oats, those worked fine too)
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 ounce package chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt the butter and pour into a large bowl. Whisk in the sugars, peanut butter, vanilla, and eggs, stirring until evenly mixed.

Add the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt and stir, again, until evenly mixed.

Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

Roll the dough into 1″ balls and place on lined baking sheets.

Bake 10-15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Or, eat still hot and un-solid straight from the toaster oven.

If, like me, you’re going to be baking up just a few at a time in a toaster oven, put your couple dough balls, still frozen, on a lined pan. Place in the toaster oven, then set the toaster oven to 300 and bake 14 or so minutes, including the pre-heating time. Every toaster oven’s different, so you may want to try a minute more or less, but it’ll be about that.

After a few hours freezing on the pans, they go into bags for storage!
