We’re at that time of year in University where there’s a lot going on that’s going to get you down. Sometimes, you need something to pick up your spirits and that’s exactly what baking can be. Today, I’ve got one of those simple, yet delicious recipes for you! I’ve made these cookies twice in the last two weeks and they never fail to make me feel better. So try them out, I promise they taste amazing!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Mix together the margarine (or margarine and shortening), brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter. Add the eggs, flour, baking soda, salt, and oats.
I decided to add chocolate chips into half the batter and raisins to the other.
Drop by teaspoons onto an ungreased sheet and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes until bottom of cookies are slightly golden.
There you go! Try these out…you really won’t regret it.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
- 1/2 cup shortening

- In a large bowl, cream together shortening, margarine, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats until just combined. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
