PB Oatmeal Cookies

After adapting this recipe, these cookies taste like Girl Scout Do-si-dos! Those are by far my favorite of the girl scout line and these actually were an improvement.

(adapted from Better Homes & Gardens)(Makes about 60-2" cookies)

3/4 cup Crisco shortening
2/3 cup Peanut Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2/3 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 + 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 + 1/2 cups Rolled Oats, finely ground

2. Beat together butter and peanut butter until well combined. Add sugars, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Beat well.

3. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Beat in flour then stir in oats
