Ginger-Touched Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies


I based these oatmeal ginger cookies on another recipe — Michele's Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies — and had a "wow" moment when I added the ginger.

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup butter

  • ½ cup shortening

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup chopped crystallized ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Cream brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and shortening together in a medium bowl. Beat in peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla.

  3. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and ground ginger, and stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in rolled oats and candied ginger.

  4. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the baking sheet to cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container when cool.
