Liv's Sweet Sugar Smoots


⅓ Cup Butter, softened (do not substitute margarine)

½ Cup Peanut Butter

2 Tbsp Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

1 Egg

¾ Cup Oatmeal

1-¼ Cup Packed Brown Sugar

¾ tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Salt

1-¼ Cups Flour

½ Cup Chocolate Chips



Preheat oven to 350 Farenheit 

Mix everything together except the chocolate chips. Once ingredients are combined, add chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.

Drop onto a baking sheet in scoops of about 2 Tbsp in size.

Bake for 8-10 min until edges start to turn golden. They will still be fairly soft.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.



Back in my 20’s I was searching for an oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie recipe and coming up short. The internet was much younger then and there were fewer recipe blogs.

Eventually, I took it upon myself to figure it out and after much test baking, I landed on this recipe. As for the name, we traveled the route from Kansas City to Pratt, Kansas pretty frequently in those days and always crossed a little bridge with a sign for Smoots Creek. I had been saving the name for a cat, but the cookies arrived first.
