Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I really love being part of Foodbuzz's Tastemakers Program! What a great way to try new products! Planters Peanut Butter was in my Tastemaker box this time. We eat a ton of peanut butter around here and Planters is one of our favorites! Ransome was wanting cookies today and wasn't sure if he wanted oatmeal, hold the raisins, or peanut butter. I decided to combine the two and came up with this recipe. These would make a great lunch box cookie. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


1 cup shortening
1 cup Planters Peanut Butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 t salt
5 t baking powder
2 t vanilla
2 cups oats
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Cream shortening, peanut butter, both sugars, vanilla, and salt together. Add eggs one at a time. Now add oats, flour, and baking powder and mix until all comes together. Drop by the tablespoon on parchment paper and bake for 12 minutes in a 375' oven.
