PB Oatmeal Cookies

In apology for the long lapse in posting,(we moved to an old farmhouse out in the country and had to wait 3 weeks for the internet!) I'm offering a no-fail, delicious cookie recipe. I love cookies, but at the same time I find it difficult to find one that actually meets my standards. This one does.

And even more surprisingly it meets my husbands as well! These are his favorite and he is actually the one who introduced me to them. They are the cookie by which all other cookies are judged by- nothing ever even comes close according to him. He made them a few times for me while we were dating. His trick to making them great is undercooking them and he would pile them into a tupperware and put them in the fridge and they would clump together like one giant cookie that we would tear chunks off of. YUM!! If you ever wondered why I married the guy, this is why- he wouldnt give me the recipe until I said YES!! :)
-Im still working on making them as great as he can, according to him I will never get it quite right!! PB Oatmeal Cookies (otherwise known as "goodness" in this household)
