Have you ever wished you could change your life?
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you know that for the last 9 years I have been working at a job that I did not love. I spent some time last month talking to a very good food blogging friend and he made me realize that if I am truly serious about making food and recipes my future I needed to get on the stick! So, I left my old job and have taken a part-time job three days a week. This gives me four days a week to work on more cookbooks, freelance jobs, and this here blog! I am excited about this step, but scared at the same time. I am determined to make this work! Instead of just wishing for a new life, I am making my new life a reality!
So, I want my new part-time coworkers to like me and I am not above bribes. I went with the classic peanut butter and chocolate combo, and I went with sandwich cookies because they are cheerful and popular. These are similar to the classic oatmeal cream pies, but SO much better. The cookies are tender and not-too-sweet, the oats add a pleasant chewiness, and the fluffy chocolate filling adds a nice contrasting sweetness. I wanted a good balance here between chocolate and peanut butter, sweet and somewhat savory, and tender yet chewy. Of course, I think I hit the nail on the head. When baking these be sure not to let them go beyond lightly golden to retain the soft texture. If you want a crisper cookie you could bake them 1 to 2 minutes more, but I like them soft. These keep pretty well in an airtight container for up to three days, but I doubt they will last that long!
