No credit given today for these cookies, but whoever was the orginal baker did me a favor. So, thank you. I pulled this recipe out of the old recipe tin.  I have made these several times.  They are a wonderful big cookie just the way I like them. 

Peanut Butter Round-ups

2 cups flour
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup shortening
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup uncooked oats, quick-one minute oats
1/2 cup Reeses' peanut butter chips

In mixing bowl add the shortening and the sugars and blend. Add the eggs, and continue to mix. Add the remaining ingredients and stir in by hand the peanut butter chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop to make balls or roll dough the size of golf balls and place on parchment paper or lightly greased baking pan and press with a fork if you want or just press lightly.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. I got 3 1/2 dozen (2 1/2 -3) inch cookies.
