Three-chip Cookies

The real name for these cookies is 'Five-chip Cookies', but I usually only have three on hand and my family thought they were delicious with that combination! This recipe is a tasty blend of chocolate chip, peanut butter and oatmeal cookies.

-Adapted from Taste of Home, Sharon Hedstrom

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup each semisweet chocolate chips, vanilla chips and butterscotch chips

In a large bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.

(3 1/2 dozen, 13 min at 325 on a dark pan+silpat)
