Notes: so, I burned half of these…lame. This wasn’t the best of days. I messed up a lot of things, including burning the cookies. The half I didn’t burn, though, turned out quite well. They were oaty and peanut buttery, so a perfect combo. They are a soft cookie, so if you want something crunchy, add more shortening and no butter. I hope you like these! This was a guest collaborative with Mac. He wanted oatmeal, I wanted peanut butter. Good teamwork.
