They are bars…but, could be made into cookies. The baking time would be less, though. I would drop them by tablespoon onto a cookie sheet and use a fork to press down in a criss-cross pattern. I’ve made these bars and the are VERY good.
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup margarine or butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 16-ounce jar natural peanut butter
2 cups oatmeal
In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt, and set aside. In large bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and oatmeal. Do not overbeat. Place mixture in an ungreased pan measuring 9×13.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
