Peanutty Fruit and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl combine oats, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add granulated and brown sugars; beat 2 minutes more until mixture is smooth. Add egg; beat for 1 minute. Reduce mixer speed to low; blend in the oat mixture, mixing only until it disappears into the dough. Using a sturdy spatula, stir in chocolate and dried cranberries.
  3. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour (or up to 2 days).
  4. Position oven racks to divide oven into thirds; preheat to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  5. Working with one half of the dough at a time, shape dough into 3/4-inch balls. Place balls about an inch apart on the prepared baking sheets, pressing down gently into rounds.
  6. Bake 6 to 8 minutes until just firm around the edges, rotating the baking sheets from top to bottom and front to back at the halfway point. Remove baking sheets from oven; let rest for 2 minutes. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack. They will firm as they cool. Repeat with remaining dough, always starting with a cool baking sheet.
  7. Serve with strawberry ice cream, if desired.

Disagree with other reviews, we love these cookies! The peanut butter, chocolate, and (I usually replace the cranberries with) dried cherries are a delicious combination and a little unexpected from a chocolate chip cookie! I especially like it with dark chocolate chocolate chips. Have made these several times since Valentines Day!

I agree. Just barely okay. Because of the color and how soft they are when ready to remove from oven, I over-baked one batch.

They tasted pretty good and were lighter than I expected, but on the whole were just OK. With so many amazing, easy-to-make cookie recipes out there, these were way too time-consuming and complicated just to end up with an OK cookie. Pleasant enough but won't make them again.
