Top Review by Hollie Bean

My son prefers SOFT cookies, and these fit the bill! They were extremely soft and also tasty! I've never made PB cookies with oatmeal in them, but it lent a nice texture. I used plain shortening also b/c that's all I had, but would be curious how the flavor might change with butter flavor shortening.
