Stephen’s Favorite Cookies

1/2 c butter
1/2 c white sugar
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c rolled oats
2/3 c chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

Preheat oven to 350° F.  In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.  Stir in peanut butter, vanilla, and egg until well blended.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter, just until moistened.  Mix in the oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes* or just until edges start to brown. Cool on cookie sheets for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

*The key to these cookies is not to overcook them.  When you first see any browning on the edges, take them out.  I’ve never cooked a batch more than 10 minutes and often only 8 or 9 minutes.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies
