Mom's Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

“I may have discovered the best peanut butter cookie recipe. The only thing I would change is less sugar--they're a little sweeter than I like. I found this recipe on foodthoughtsofachefwannabe.com. She found one of her mother-in-law's heavenly recipes but the measurements for the ingredients weren't listed. She experimented and came up with this, and they are delicious.”

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients (make sure you add the flour at the end).
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper. (I skipped this step and found it really wasn't necessary. The cookies are buttery enough they come off cleanly from the pan.).
  4. Using a cookie scoop, any size you like, gently press down on the cookies to make criss cross marks. Make sure you push them down slightly because they won't spread as much on their own.
  5. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes.
  6. Remove and put on a cooling rack.
