A recipe from Disney: Lazy Weekend Concoction

In honor of my trip to Orlando this weekend,
I figured I would give you a recipe from Mickey Mouse!

Mickey Mouse Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
This is a Disneyland 40th Anniversary Cookie Recipe.


•2 1/2 cup flour
•1 cup sugar
•1 1/2 tsp baking soda
•1 cup packed brown sugar
•1 cup (2 sticks) butter
•1 tsp vanilla
•1 cup peanut butter
•2 eggs
•2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided)
•1 cup quick oats

1.Combine: flour and baking soda in small bowl. Beat butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla in a larger mixer bowl until cramy. Beat in eggs. Beat in flour mixture. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Freeze until slightly firm but not hard.

2.Roll: dough into 1 1/2 in. ball; press down slightly on ungreased baking sheet. Roll 1 1/4 in. ball; cut in half. Attach to first ball as ears. Repeat with remaining dough; place about 2 inches apart.

3.Bake: in preheated 350 oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown and centers are still soft.
Let stand for 3 minute; remove to wire racks to cool.

4.Microwave remaining Chocolate chips: Put in plastic bag microwave on high for 45 seconds; knead.  Microwave at 10-20 sec. intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut a tiny corner from bag; squeeze to pipe chocolate to create Mickey Mouse faces. Allow chocolate to cool.

Hope you have a magical weekend! Enjoy!
