Almond-y Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
If you find your dough oily, place the dough in the fridge for an hour until it firms up. This will ensure that you don't end up with pancake-shaped cookies because the butter/fat is melted. Alternately, consider sifting in additional flour.
Make sure that the cookie sheets you use are always cool when you place a new batch, so it doesn't melt the cookies before they make it to the oven.
If you want a lot of almond flavor to sweeten up the cookies, feel free to add a full teaspoon.
