Darleen's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips( my addition)
2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
Beat shortening, then add both sugars, and then the eggs. Add peanut butter. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and then stir in chocolate chips. Roll into balls and press with a fork. Bake 350 for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven. I went about 14 minutes. Let them cool on the pan, then transfer to rack to cool. Makes about 5 dozen delicious cookies.
Don't they look great. Thick and chewy and the peanut butter is the star. So next time you pull out that old recipe for peanut butter cookies, maybe be daring and try this one. You won't regret it. This is my new go to peanut butter cookie recipe, which makes it keeper worthy, in my book.
