Oatmeal Cookies + Good Stuff (See Jane Bake)


I received a KitchenAid mixer for my bridal shower and had been anxious to put it to work.  Suffice to say, it didn't disappoint; it makes mixing so easy!  I've never been a huge baking fan, but perhaps the tides will turn now that I have this helpful contraption on hand.

All of the sudden I'm getting these hankerings for sweets that I never really had before (I'm a salty food kind of gal).  I'll blame it on pre-wedding jitters.  I just knew I needed something slightly sweet with peanut butter (I used natural peanut butter) and once I found this recipe from BrownEyedBaker, I knew it was fate.  Eric says these cookies are, "the best ever...how are they so soft and delicious?"  His words, not mine, thus you should probably make them.
