So I have a confession to make, I’ve been kind of lazy recently when it comes to cookies. I’ve pretty much been making variations of the same oatmeal cookie… sometimes with more oatmeal, sometimes with less, add some chocolate chips, replace some of the butter with peanut butter, add some apple bits, add some cinnamon, some nutmeg, some ground almonds in place of some flour, drizzle some chocolate on top, anything you can imagine really. And I’ve been thinking, perhaps all cookies started this way; you have a basic skeleton of a cookie, then you embellish, replace and experiment – empirical baking, you see!

So these are peanut butter oatmeal cookies with drizzled chocolate and apple, cinnamon and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Yum!
