I have been using this recipe for years, it's in the Betty Crocker Cooky Book, but you make them into thumbprint cookies and add a drop of jelly in to the center after they come out the oven. They are rich so I make them small and yield more!

They're very rich. They're good, but not a favorite. Only one of my three kids liked them. I think it might be the combination of peanut butter and oatmeal.

I used butter instead of shortening and had to increase the baking time to 15 minutes. They were crispy at first, but after storing them overnight in a sealed container, they were soft and chewy the next day. These cookies make a nice change.

Very good. I use a lot of jam and I think it's amazing even if they are a little messy.
