My grandma gave me this recipe. Very simple but still really good! Once you try these, you won't want to stop eating them!
- 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 cup chunky peanut butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips or 1 cup M&M'
- Cream margarine, peanut butter, and brown sugar. Beat in egg.
- Stir together oatmeal, flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into creamed batter. Stir in chocolate chips.
- Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
These cookies had great flavor, but they stayed in the mound that they were dropped in...did not spread or come out as pretty cookies. Not to be deterred, I took the remaining dough and put it into a prepared 9x9 pan and made bars out of it...DELICIOUS!
Hi Christine - You are my choice for Spring PAC (Pick a Chef) ! Today, I made your Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies and they were just awesome. (I don't usually like peanut butter cookies that much but these are great.) I acutally ate the batter raw which is really bad of me but I couldn't resist. My kids scarfed down three cookies each after school today and they say to tell you "two thumbs up" . The only change I made was to use smooth peanut butter (all I had) and my oven took closer to 12 minutes to cook them. This goes in our favourites file. I'll be talking to you again since I have two more of your recipes to prepare, and I am looking forward to that. Thx Christineyy!
