I have been using this recipe for years it's in the Betty Crocker Cooky Book but you make them into thumbprint cookies and add a drop of jelly in to the center after they come out the oven. They are rich so I make them small and yield more! Read More

They're very rich. They're good but not a favorite. Only one of my three kids liked them. I think it might be the combination of peanut butter and oatmeal. Read More

I used butter instead of shortening and had to increase the baking time to 15 minutes. They were crispy at first but after storing them overnight in a sealed container they were soft and chewy the next day. These cookies make a nice change. Read More
