The YUMMIEST Peanut Butter Cookies EVER!
Warning! These cookies are SO delicious you will not be able to eat just one! The night I made these I had FOUR, ouch!!
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries
Heat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, sugars, eggs, baking soda and salt until smooth. Fold in the oats and cranberries.
Shape the dough into balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon each) and place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Using the tines of a fork, flatten each ball, creating a crisscross pattern (you are suppose to do this but I was lazy!).
Bake, until puffed and golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
