Double Baked Cookie Accident




Today I planned on making a wonderful little post that talked about these wonderful little things called double baked cookies…however I must confess they were NOT supposed to be double baked.. If someone (not naming names here) could have baked them all the way the first time these texturally satisfying cookies would have never been born. I happened to bake these cookies in a loaf pan, let them out of the oven to rest, the middles collapsed as I got hooked into watching Teen Mom. Thanks MTV.


And here they are.






INGREDIENTS


• 1/2 cup butter
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
• 1/2 cup peanut butter
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 egg
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup rolled oats
• 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips







DIRECTIONS



Pre-heat your oven to 350.


In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter, vanilla and egg until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter just until moistened. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed. Drop by golf ball sized spoonfuls on to lightly greased cookie sheet.



Bake these bad boys for just 6-8 minutes…only about half way then remove from oven to cool for a few minutes. Once you are able to touch work the dough in to a ball. The ball will be made of half baked cookie and half raw dough. The melted chocolate chips make it very easy to re-work. Make large golf ball sized cookies, press down with fork (dip your fork in cold water so the cookie does not stick) I also used my fork to even the edges out. Place on cookie sheet.


Bake for another 6-10 minutes or until browned, remove from oven and cool on the pan.


I topped mine with vanilla ice cream and extra chocolate chips. So if you ever find yourself with a pile of half baked cookies by accident …double bake them jerks.

You are a real problem solver. Sometimes the best discoveries are the result of a mistake...sometimes not.

I enjoyed this post. I am just the person who would easily get distracted and have to bake my cookies twice. Nice.

Great problem-solving! I probably would have eaten the half-cooked ones and had nothing to blog about. They look delicious, and with peanut butter, chocolate and oats you really can't go wrong.
