How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars till light and fluffy (around 7 minutes)
  3. Add eggs, vanilla extract and water. Beat well
  4. Combine flour, soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix well (about 2 minutes)
  5. Add oats and mix well
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and peanuts (you can chop them if you like)
  7. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto parchment lined cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each (I usually get a dozen on a standard sized sheet). Flatten with a dampened fork.
  8. Bake @ 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes, rotating the pan @ the 8 minute mark, or till golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven. Cool for a couple of minutes and then remove to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
