PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
When I was in high school, I worked two summers at Camp Singing Wind. First as a Kitchen Cutie and then as a Life Guard / Counselor. The cook for the camp (Cookie) would make these peanut butter/oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies that were just fantastic. I was never able to find a recipe that even came close to those camp cookies until three years ago. I started combining different cookie recipes until I found a good match. These cookies are my favorite!
