Peanut butter is a popular dessert and flavoring that almost everyone loves. If you really want to impress people with your cooking skills, try mixing two favorite cookies together into one: peanut butter oatmeal cookies. Taking the nutty, sweet flavor of the peanut butter cookies and mixing it with the fluffy texture and vanilla taste of oatmeal cookies can be an outstanding combination that can blow the socks of anyone who tries them.

The following peanut butter oatmeal cookies are full of nutty and fruity goodness that you can taste with every bite. Begin by preheating your oven to 375 F. In a bowl, beat 2/3 cup of peanut butter with ¾ cup room temperature butter. When mixed, add 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup of brown sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda and 1 tsp cinnamon. Stir until all ingredients are combined. To that mixture add 2 eggs and 1 tsp cinnamon. Beat in 1 ¼ cup flour and finally 2 cups of rolled oats, 2/3 cup dried cranberries and 2/3 cup walnuts.

Drop onto a baking sheet that is ungreased. Put them into your heated oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. Let cool, eat and enjoy!  If you want to exchange the cranberries or walnuts for other items in your peanut butter oatmeal cookies, go for it.  Try peanuts, MMs, chocolate chips or other dried fruits.  Challenge yourself to come up with your own flavor combinations.

Speaking of peanut butter, another excellent recipe that involves peanut buttery goodness is easy peanut butter fudge. This recipe takes no time to make and is as easy as mixing some simple ingredients and spooning them into a pan. The hard part is waiting until it is hard enough to cut!

In a medium saucepan, gently melt ½ cup of butter. When totally melted, add ½ cup of milk and 2 ¼ cup of brown sugar. Melt this mixture and bring to a boil. Once it begins boiling, let it boil for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from the burner and mix in ¾ cup of peanut butter and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and add the final ingredient of your easy peanut butter fudge, 3 ½ cup of confectioner’s sugar. Mix all of this together until smooth and pour into an 8 x 8 inch glass pan. Here is the hard part…you need to chill the pan in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours minimum before eating. When you can cut through the easy peanut butter fudge without it sticking to the knife, it is ready to enjoy!
