My gma recently took an old family favorite peanut butter cookie recipe and spiced it up by adding some oatmeal to the mix. From now on I don't think i'll ever make peanut butter cookies again w/o adding oatmeal. It makes the cookies so chewy and adds more flavor and texture to what was already a great cookie.
INGREDIENTS 1 cup butter 1 cup white sugar 1 cup brown sugar 1/4 tsp. salt Beat thoroughly. Add: 2 beaten eggs. Add: 1 cup peanut butter 1 tsp. vanilla 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups flour 1 1/2 cups quick oats 2 tsp. soda Drop onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
