A nice change of pace from the usual peanut butter cookie. My husband never liked peanut butter cookies until I made him this recipe.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a large bowl, cream together shortening, margarine, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats until just combined. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. 3 Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just light brown. Don't over-bake. Cool and store in an airtight container.

  1. very disappointing! I think if I would have used just Butter instead of the shortening and Butter; they would have tasted a lot better. My children and husband didn't like them either; and said that there was an "aftertaste". It also calls for too much sugar.
  2. Over analyzation and discussion is just not necessary with this recipe. It is, quite simply, a great recipe on its own merit and doesn't need any messing around with it. Generally I prefer all butter for my cookies, but sometimes, as with this cookie, the shortening/butter combo is for a reason-shortening for a little heft - Read more ...
  3. Soooo Soft and Chewy! This was a perfectly soft not-overly sweet peanut butter cookie. I don't like crunchy/ crisp peanut butter cookies and this recipe gave me exactly what I was looking for. Definitely add REAL BUTTER (salted) and I find adding 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chip enhances the cookie. You can't really taste the - Read more ...
  4. These are fantastic! I've made them several times, and I find that I like them with extra oats (1/2 cup or so), less sugar, and with unsalted butter (I don't use shortening or margarine because they're scary). I often add chocolate chips to some of them, as well. For those who get flat cookies, there - Read more ...
  5. Very good! I too increased the following ingredients: PB 1 1/2 cups, oats 2 cups and added 1 tsp vanilla. Terrific! Then, for 1/2 the batter I put in 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips. Those cookies were good, but it overpowered the PB and so just tasted like chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
  6. How could someone complain about this recipe? I am not a cookie baker novice, and these cookies were just beautiful!! I added some white chocolate chips. Other than that, I didn't change a thing. The oatmeal gave them a beautiful rugged texture, not to mention an awesome taste! And I don't know why some say - Read more ...
  7. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! I subsituted 1 cup of butter instead of the margarine and shortening and it made the PERFECT cookie. THANK YOU THANK YOU.. deeeelicious! I added chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and white chocolate chips to the occassional cookie for a nice treat! Thanks again!
  8. This recipe is very good. I doubled the recipe, and then added 2 extra cups of oats regular, not quick cooking). I also added 2 tsps of Almond extract. I also used crunchy peanut butter. These are very easy to bake. You know they are done when they look wrinkled. Be careful not to move - Read more ...
  9. HAD TO TRY AFTER READING REVIEWS AND MADE MODIFICATIONS...MY FAMILY RAVED ABOUT THESE...BEST I EVER MADE, HAD TO RATION THEM OUT...MY MODIFICATIONS WERE; ADD 1TSP VANILLA, INCREASE FLOUR TO 1 3/4 CUP FLOUR...INCREASE OATMEAL TO 1 1/2 CUPS....USE 1 CUP CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER PLUS 1/2 CUP CREAMY PEATNUT BUTTER...DECREASE SALT TO 1/2 TSP.. I ALSO - Read more ...
  10. Very good cookies! We used 2 cups of oatmeal (the 1 cup it called for just didn't seem like enough). Glad we did! Baking cookies are out of my element but these were easy and turned out tasty!
