1 c. creamy or chunk peanut butter
1 c. brown sugar
½ c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 ½ c. quick or old-fashioned oats

Preheat oven to 350ยบ.  In mixer bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter and sugars; blend in eggs and vanilla.  Add remaining ingredients, mixing well.  Shape dough to form 1-inch balls.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten with fork (or use the “waffle” side of a meat tenderizer) dipped in sugar to form crisscross pattern.  Bake about 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire cooling rack.

Optional:  Melt about 4 ounces of chocolate and dip the top half of each cookie.
