Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

I have to say that these are the best peanut butter cookies I have ever had. They combine my two favorite things about cookies chewy and crunchy at the same time. My sister told me about this recipe and the other day I was REALLY craving cookies so I started getting ingredients to make my chocolate chip cookies and I realized I didn't have chocolate chips. Hoping to avoid a massive breakdown from my kids I whipped these bad boys up and they hit the spot.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together shortening, butter, 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. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until just light brown. Don't over-bake. Mine took about 13 min. Just keep an eye on them.
