10 Min

Ingredients

1 c
granulated sugar
1 c
packed brown sugar
1 c
chunky peanut butter
1/2 c
shortening
1/2 c
butter or margarine, softened
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2
eggs
2 c
all-purpose flour
1/2 c
oats, quick cooking or old-fashioned
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
3 c
trail mix (preferred w/raisins, m&m's, cashews)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat sugars, peanut butter, shortening, butter or margarine, vanilla and eggs -- mix until creamy. Stir in flour, oats, baking powder and baking soda and mix thoroughly. Stir in trail mix.
2
Dough is not tacky, so scoop up some dough in the palm of your hand and form into a ball -- as big as you wish. Place dough ball on ungreased cookie sheet and smash down with palm of your hand.
3
Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Cool 2 minutes before taking off cookie sheet (cool longer the bigger they are); remove and cool completely on wire rack.
