These wonderful cookies stay in a ball shape and are fantastic! My sister shared this recipe with me and her hint was to keep them stored in the refrigerator, which I have to agree- almost tastes like candy! Very good! We both double this recipe each time we make it.
- Combine all the above ingredients (we do it by hand, but I am sure a mixer is fine) and roll into balls, then roll into sugar.
- Place on cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, no longer!
- Let cool, if you can--.
These are really great cookies. They do make much more than the stated 18-24. I rolled them in little balls and they made 40! Don't panic if they seem really crumbly and hard to mix. I thought I wasted time, money and ingredients when they didnt pull together like I thought they should, but I just kept working the dough into the balls and they were fantastic! I served them both cold and room temperature and they were devoured both ways. They are a nice change from your usual chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie. They hold their shape beautifully so look nice on a cookie tray. Thanks for this recipe. I will definitely make them again. I do think, though, that I will not use as much sugar to roll them in because they are pretty sweet. Lightly rolling the top is sufficient. Great recipe!
I made these with the Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal peanut butter by Planters and it was so yummy! Love the raisins with the chocolate chips and the yummy cinnamon. Super easy, too. I had all the ingredients on hand and didn't have to run to the store to buy 1 item. I would definitely recommend these!
Made these for a function recently, and they got rave reviews! I made them bite-sized (quite small) and got nearly 100 balls out of a double recipe. The key to making these is mixing the ingredients VERY thoroughly - I did this by wearing cooking gloves and mixing it with my gloved hands. Then, wearing the gloves, it's very easy to roll nice little bite-sized balls. Fun to eat and really good!
