A petite, thin, somewhat crunchy Peanut Butter cookie- packed with flavor. A cookie that might be served at a Tapas restaurant. I just ate the first one- Oh- I think peanut butter lover's will really like this one. Tiny, crunchy with pea-nutty wow! - Wrap them proudly in cellophane bags and tie with ribbons- for gifts.
1 cup good quality peanut butter ( I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup softened butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Old Fashioned or Quick Cooking Oats (uncooked)
