Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

These are crispy yet still soft to eat.
After looking at many peanut butter
recipes I put this good one together.
They resemble the flavor of the inside of
Reese's peanut butter cups with the added
texture of the flakes of oatmeal.

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl cream together the
vegetable shortening and peanut butter.
Add in sugar and mix well the add in
the egg and vanilla, continue mixing well.
Mix in the rolled oats, baking soda, flour and salt.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a parchment
paper lined baking sheet and press down with a fork.
Bake for about 20 minutes or so until they
just start to get browned around the edges.
Careful they tend to brown quickly when done.
