Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Cookie 1


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Makes 10 large cookies


1/4 cup (50 grams) shortening

1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup (110 grams) packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (75 grams) white sugar

1/2 cup (130 grams) peanut butter

1 large egg, room temperature

3/4 cup (95 grams) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup (4o grams) quick-cooking oats


  1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together shortening, unsalted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and peanut butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl, crack in the egg, and beat on medium speed until combined.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. Add to the bowl of the stand mixer, and mix on low until almost combined, being careful not to overmix. Mix in the oats until just combined.
  3. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes before proceeding.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Scoop the cookie dough using a large cookie scoop onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. (Allow only 6 cookies on a sheet at a time, because they do spread.)
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the cookies are slightly puffy and golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes, then move to a cooling rack until ready to eat.
