These were really good. I made exactly like recipe but didn't have time to make drop cookies so I lined 9x13 and 9x9 pans with nostick foil and made bar cookies, and baked them about 25 min. They turned out just fine. If I make them again I will use chunky peanut butter maybe extra chunky. Thanks for great recipe.

Made this recipe with a kitchen full of Chinese scholars a few weeks ago, and again today. I especially like the idea of using oatmeal in this recipe. The Chinese students don't enjoy super-sweet (last year, one student politely asked if she could scrape the frosting off a cake). The oatmeal offset some of the sweetness.
