Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got this great recipe from my friend Elisabeth.  She made them for us one day and we loved them.  They have continued to be a favorite at our house.

Super Long-Named But Delicious Cookies

3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup peanut butter
2 or 3 Tbsp. water (start with 2 and add more if needed)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour (may need 1/4 cup more)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs, then add peanut butter, water, and vanilla.  Mix well.  Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt, then rolled oats.  Finally, mix in chocolate chips.  Scoop onto greased cookie sheet, about 1-2 inches apart.  Bake at 350* to desired doneness (8+ minutes).
