Peanut Butter Oat Cookies: decrease flour to 1 cup, add 1 cup quick

(Special thanks to Skippy Peanut Butter.) [The Great American Peanut
Butter Book, by Larry & Honey Zisman, pg 18; St. Martin's Press, New
York, 1985.]

[I made these last night to pack for my trip to Reno. Whatever you
do, don't use creamy peanut butter! With just 1/2 cup nut butter
mixed with 2 cups flour, the nut taste gets kind of lost. I used
almond butter; we also used Cantbelieveitsnotbutter for the
margarine. Don't round those Tbspfulls too high, as these cookies
wind up a bit on the large size. I also forgot about flattening them
out; oh well... What I have are chocolate chip cookies (mini-chips),
with a faint almond flavor.]
