Peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe

I used to work in a local bakery that specialized in oatmeal cookies that weighed in at a quarter pound each. The peanut butter ones were my favorite. While not the same recipe, this comes darn close!

  • 1 1/2 cups shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream shortening and peanut butter together in a large bowl. Add brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Combine remaining ingredients than add to peanut butter mixture. Mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly and bake 10-12 minutes, until golden.
