“The Saratoga” is everything one could want in a peanut butter cookie. The cookies blend the perfect chew with a little crunch.  Rich and just sweet enough, peanut butter is the strong prevailing flavor. Full of that traditional, comforting nutty-ness, these are amazing warm from the oven or cool (when they get even chewier!).

Enjoy this classic recipe, it may soon become your own local tradition!

Makes 13 cookies

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup Saratoga Plain Jane peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk or non-dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a blender or food processer, grind the oats until they form a course powder. With a stand or electric mixer, beat the peanut butter, sugar, salt, and egg. Add the oats, baking powder, milk and mix until combined.

Blend, process, or crush the cookies, peanuts and additional salt until they form coarse crumbs. Set aside.

Form the dough into 13 1 oz disks. Press about 1/2 tbsp of the crumbs into the bottom of the cookie and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Impress each disk with either forks or a potato masher, creating a grid.

Bake  for 10 minutes, then let cool on the sheet for 3 to 4 additional minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and enjoy!!
