Recipe - The "Bestest" Oatmeal Cookies - Ever!

Last week I had a big baking day. I made 8 batches of granola, with other things in between as the mixer and oven allowed.

For our homeschool program last Friday I made up a batch of these wonderful cookies. They were sent out from Large Family Logistics about 3 years ago and have been our favorite ever since! I usually only make a half-batch which is still a ton of cookies. The dough also freezes beautifully.

Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!

The "Bestest" Oatmeal Cookies - Ever!

Cream together in large mixer:
3 Cups Butter, softened
1.5 Cups Sugar
1.5 Cups Brown Sugar
6 Eggs
1 16 oz. Jar of Peanut Butter
Mix, in order given, with the creamed mixture. Be careful not to over mix the flour and oatmeal.

3 tsp. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Cups Flour
9 Cups Oatmeal
Mix in:
12 oz. Bag of Chocolate Chips
Drop by heaping tablespoons (these babies need to be big!) onto cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 or until done. Eat one warm from the oven with a glass of milk!
