Housewarming Gifts

When Brian and I headed to welcome our friends into their new apartment last night, I knew that we couldn’t show up empty handed.  Of course I wanted to bake them a housewarming gift!  Cookies it was…and they sure were a hit 😉

White Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies (original recipe from How Sweet Eats)


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp melted margarine, cooled
  • 6 Tbsp peanut butter (I used natural crunchy) melted and cooled
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Combine the margarine and peanut butter in a small bowl.  Microwave in 30 second intervals until a melted and creamy mixture.
In a separate bowl combine flour, oats, soda, and salt.  In a mixer bowl combine the cooled peanut butter mixture with the sugars.  Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla.  Once combined, gradually add in the flour mixture.  Fold in the white chocolate chips.
Place dough in golf ball sized balls on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy!!!
Little did I know, Caitlin had a housewarming gift for me too! She brought the Vera Bradley catalog with her!
I can’t wait to take it home to show my family!
