I found some time today to bake up some cookies; Surprisingly. Though I love the holidays and the cooking and the family time we spend together during this season; I am so glad that the holidays have passed! It's a good thing it only comes once a year; It'd be way to chaotic for me if it came more than once a year!
I didn't really know what kind of cookie I wanted to make at first. When I asked my boyfriend what kind of cookie he'd want, he gave me just a boring answer; Chocolate Chip Cookies. Ugh! Though I do love chocolate chip cookies (who doesn't?!), they're a bit to boring for me to make. I like my cookies to have a little bit something special to them. Different. Not ordinary.
To give these chocolate chip cookies a 'pop', I added peanut butter, a little bit of oatmeal, just for a chewy-er taste, and I mixed the chocolate between white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They came out really good and my boyfriend really had a liking to them. Next time though, I think I may use dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips instead semi and white.

1/2 cup white sugar
