Freelance Cookies

I'm in the middle of a big push to pick up some new freelance clients. Tomorrow, I'm visiting eight local engineering shops and dropping off my business card along with a plateful of cookies. I'm giving them my favorite cookie recipe; I made over a hundred of these today.

It's everything I like in a cookie: some chocolate, some peanut butter, and some chewiness. I made four batches of these tonight; they're dead simple and delicious. I use a stand mixer, which is great, but you're welcome to use a hand-mixer or your bulging muscles if you like.

  • 1 stick butter (room temperature or warmer, but not liquid)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1.5 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • .5 t salt
  • 1 C old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 C chocolate chips
  • 1/3 C peanut butter chips
  1. Add butter and brown sugar to bowl. Beat.
  2. Add egg and vanilla. Beat.
  3. Add dry ingredients. Beat.
  4. Add oats. Mix.
  5. Add chocolate and peanut butter chips. Mix.
  6. Add to cookie sheet in a size that you like. Cook at 350 for 13 minutes.  I kept two cookie sheets going at all times, switching the top and bottom sheets at the 6:30 mark.
  7. Move to cooling rack immediately. Try not to eat the first batch by the time the second batch comes out of the oven.
