2 sticks of butter, softened
2 cups of white sugar
2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
3 cups of creamy peanut butter (one sister uses crunchy, I don't know what the difference is)
9 cups of oatmeal
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy.
3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add peanut butter, stir in oatmeal.
4. Add: Choose three:
Milk chocolate chips
Peanut butter chips
I use: 3/4 bag of butterscotch chips, 1/2 bag chocolate chips, 1/3 bag peanut butter chips, 1 cup of walnuts. People seem to like the butterscotch taste. My sister uses: 2 cups of chocolate chips, 1/2 lb mini M&M's and then picks one or two of the others, adding amounts to her taste. But what does she know?!
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes and cool on rack for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
