Lala's Salted Peanut Cookies

I have made this recipe for years.
I originally got it from a co-worker named Shauna and it has always been a favorite of mine.
The cookies are thin, crispy, crunchy and a little bit salty. They are not fancy but they sure are good!
Hope they become a favorite of yours!

I just retired from 45 years of critical care nursing.
I worked with a great group of people and have decided to take them baked goods on a regular basis, so tomorrow I will deliver these to the staff of the ICU.

1 c. SUGAR
2 large EGGS
1 tsp. VANILLA
3 c. OLD-FASHION OATS, uncooked

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the unbeaten eggs and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.

Sift flour with the baking soda.
Add the oats to the flour mixture.

Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture.
Add peanuts and mix well.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until browned.

Makes 6 dozen

It is hard to leave something you love to do but so many other good things are to come! I'm sure the folks in the ICU will love them! They look delicious!

They would be so yummy, Fay! Enjoy your retirement, so lovely not to be ruled by a clock.

OOPS - correction. I meant to say: I don't add OLD-FASHION OATS (not nuts!!)

I've always made Peanut Brownies, but our recipes are a little bit different - I think I must try yours next time. I don't add nuts and use Baking Powder, not BS, and I just roast plain peanuts.
And enjoy your retirement and keep baking...
