Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookies
makes 2 1/2 dozen

1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/4 cups quick cooking oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter & the dark brown sugar on Medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg & the vanilla blending well. Add the peanut butter & mix on Low speed just until blended. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the bowl sides with a rubber spatula. Whisk together the oats, the flour, the baking soda, the cinnamon & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Freeze the dough 10 minutes.

Portion the dough using a 4-teaspoon size cookie scoop & place 2-inches apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Flatten the dough to a 2-inch diameter using a juice glass. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven & let stand 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely.

How To Make Peanut Butter-Oatmeal Cookies

When making drop cookies, it’s a good idea to have several cookie scoop sizes available to portion the dough quickly. Although this particular recipe provides instructions for a small tool, a larger one would work well to create bigger treats. Simply bake filled pans a few minutes longer. The dough may also be frozen up to one month, then thawed & baked at your convenience.
