Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! We made this recipe with many modifications and it was still delicious! We did all butter, no shortening, decreased white sugar to 1/4 cup, used a combo of whole wheat and regular flour, added vanilla, chocolate chips and pecans. Beautiful cookies and most delicious. Also, very easy recipe. We'll be making this one often!

These are the best cookies. They disappear very quickly. I reduced the sugar by a quarter cup and added 1/2 cup more oatmeal because they were too sweet for me. All I can say is YUMMY!!!

These cookies were absolutely delicious! I did cut the salt amount in half and added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. I followed everything else to the exact. I was kind of leary about not pressing them down with a fork, I didn't do it and let me tell you....they were PERFECT. These will be the only peanut butter cookies I ever make. Thanks for sharing

Made these for my soldier who is currently across the country. I've never made peanut butter oatmeal cookies before (my standard is chocolate chip), but they are his favorite. They came out wonderfully, even with making a couple tweaks to the recipe like not using shortening. Dough seemed a little too moist, so I added about 1/4c extra of flour. Worked very well. One note though: this yielded 40 cookies of the indicated size, not 24 as stated in the recipe. Don't know if my 1.5

These were very nice. I used lard instead of shortening because I don't use shortening. I used regular oats but chopped them up a bit in my coffee grinder. Next time I will halve the sugar. They were too sweet for me.

Made these tonight and they turned out great! I kept the brown sugar the same but reduced the white to 1/2 cup. The flavor was very good and I just loved the texture of these cookies! They are a big hit in our house. Thanks for the post!

These are excellent! They have great texture and taste. The recipe makes a lot! I usually keep a batch in the freezer and they are great right from the ice box. Delicious! They have become a regular recipe in my home. I made them for my baby shower and everyone wanted the recipe and couldn't keep their hands off them. Thanks for the wonderful cookie recipe!!

Wonderful!!!! I brought this to my dance and everyone loved it. I received so many complements. I made some with chocolate chips and someone with out. Either way the cookies received great reviews. I followed the directions as written and found them easy to make. Thanks so much for sharing.

AMAZING COOKIES!!!! All I did is that I substituted 1/2 cup of shortening for a 1/2 cup of butter to make the recipe call for 1 cup of butter.
