  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup oats quick-cooking


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. (175 degrees C)
  • In a bowl combine shortening, butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and peanut butter until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Combine flour, soda, and salt and stir into creamed mixture.
  • Mix in oats until just combined.
  • Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes.
  • Using a quick-release scoop, drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet. I like to line mine with a silicone mat.
  • Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until just lightly browned. Cook time will vary depending on how big your cookies are. I used 2 tablespoons of dough and baked for 9 minutes. I prefer soft, chewy cookies. Bake longer if you like crisp cookies.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.
