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.

Yummy cookies! I used all butter flavour Crisco, and half regular peanut butter, half chunky. Super simple to make, and are done quickly. One tip: make sure to take the out of the oven when they're just barely browning around the edges - this is what keeps them soft. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for PRMR Tag.

Great cookies! I used plain shortening & margarine, just roll the dough, no need to roll in sugar or flatten with fork, spreads out nicely & are soft.
