These are cookies that my mom used to make all the time when I was a kid. They are dangerously addictive and easy to eat, especially since they are best raw, right out of the freezer. These are so good that I seriously haven't made them in years- because I literally cannot stop eating them. But what the hell, it's Christmas right?
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup oats
Cream first 5 ingredients thoroughly.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and stir well.
Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing well.
Stir in the oats.
Shape dough into rolls about 2 inches thick in diameter. Wrap in wax paper and chill for several hours before baking.
Slice at least 1/4 inch thick for baking. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Or do like me, and don't bake them at all. And voila! Cookies for lazy people.
