{White Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies}

Yes, I believe I have lost my mind because this is the second cookie recipe I have created in less then a month (Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookie Recipe Here).  And even though I have stated countless times on the blog that I am not a baker at heart, I just cannot seem to get rid of this itch to bake!  These peanut butter cookies are decedent, delicious and studded with white and milk chocolate chips.  They are the perfect little after dinner treat and satisfy the cookie monster feeling that can sometimes come over me!  

These delicious chocolate studded cookies feature one of my absolute favorite peanut butters, White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter from the Peanut Butter & Co. in NY City.   

I know I have raved about this peanut butter countless times on the blog, but the thought of using my favorite peanut butter in a cookie had never crossed my mind before... Remember, I never really used to bake! 

Anyways, I reached out to the lovely people at The Peanut Butter & Co. about my cookie recipe and they were kind enough to send me a few jars of their delicious peanut butter just for this recipe! These cookies got rave reviews from my coworkers, family and even Derek the master cookie baker! 
Are you ready for me to just share the recipe with you already?  Well alright, here it is!
