Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

When I was a kid I loved cookies. Chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, chocolate chocolate chip, M&M cookies, peanut butter cookies. You name it, I loved it. Except for the oatmeal cookie. Can you guess who did happen to be a big fan of the oatmeal cookie? My father, the cookie baker of the house.

He would head to the kitchen and start mixing away and then I’d start smelling something delicious. I’d run in there to see what was happening and I’d be greeted with a plateful of delicious smelling, scrumptious looking, disgusting old oatmeal raisin cookies. I’d take one bite, spit out the raisins and start whining.

My poor dad would just start crying. He would sob and wring his hands and just weep for hours after I spit out his cookies. It was quite sad.

Alright, so I guess I should tell you the truth before my big manly father has a stroke because I’ve told the internet that he weeps over cookies. The truth is that he did bake oatmeal raisin cookies and they weren’t my favorite, but I ate them anyway. I was a child. Of course I ate the cookies! If I hadn’t eaten the cookies my dad wouldn’t have cried. He probably would have been secretly happy to get to eat them all himself.

Today I decided to face my fears and bake oatmeal cookies. There are no raisins in my cookies (I wouldn’t dream of adding them. Cookies should have chocolate, not fruit. I’m talking to you, Dad.), but there are peanut butter chips and a mixture of milk and dark chocolate chips. I’m happy to say that I have seen the light. Oatmeal cookies are actually pretty tasty.

And, just in case my dad hasn’t quite forgiven me for telling the internet that he’s a big crybaby, I’m planning on taking him a big batch tonight. I just hope he doesn’t behave the way I used to when he sees that I’ve left out the raisins.
