Categories: Cookies / Desserts / Nuts

1 1/2  cups  Shortening, soft
1  cup  Granulated sugar
1 1/2  cups  Brown sugar, firmly packed
3    Eggs
12  ounces  Chunk-style peanut butter
3 1/2  cups  Sifted all-purpose flour
2  teaspoons  Soda
3/4  teaspoon  Salt
2  cups  Quaker Oats, uncooked
    (quick or old-fashioned)

Beat shortening and sugars together until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in peanut butter. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture; blend well. Stir in oats. Shape to form 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cooky sheets. With tines of fork, press to make crisscrosses on each. (If dough sticks to fork, occasionally dip fork in flour.) Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) 12 to 15 minutes.
