I have more to share with you all and I fully intend on sharing it sometime, but at the moment graduate school and family is consuming all of my time. Hopefully I will get back to you all soon. In the meantime, feel free to visit me over at: hootsonmission.blogspot.com

Thursday was a chilly, windy day - the kind of day that begs for cookies to be made. I was craving No Bake cookies, but we didn't have any Quick Oats in the pantry. So I went on an Internet hunt for something with peanut butter, chocolate and oatmeal. I found the most remarkable cookie on one of my favorite blogs, Brown Eyed Baker.
The only variation between our cookie and the original is that we used mini-chocolate chips, which happened because that is all we had on hand, but it turned out to be fantastic. I am certain this is our new favorite cookie. It's a simple but perfect combination - the peanut butter is subtle, the oatmeal adds a crunch and the mini-chocolate chips perfectly distributed chocolatey-ness throughout the cookie.
