Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Over the past week, I have been trying out a few different cookie recipes and narrowing it down to one recipe for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. This is one of the recipes that I decided not to use, but wanted to share because they are so delicious.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies – Makes approx. 48 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, maragine, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until just combined.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookies sheets. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until light brown. Cool five minutes before moving to a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.

Eat and enjoy!

I also made a batch without the chocolate chips, which is the picture above. But they are much better with chocolate chips – trust me. Everything is better with chocolate.
