The dessert: PB Oatmeal & Choco Chip Cookies

Thank you to Mulan922 from What's Cooking to recommending this PB recipe to me. This was supposed to be a surprise for my sister for dessert, but she couldn't make it up to my house. It's okay, Jessica, was my taste-tester had gladly approved the cookies! My husband had 4 of them with a large glass of milk. These are really good cookies, and a great sweet treat!
