PEANUT BUTTER CRISSCROSSES Basic
Beat sugar, peanut butter and butter until creamy. Add water, egg and vanilla; beat well.
Combine oats, flour and baking soda; add to peanut butter mixture and mix well. Cover; chill for about 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with tines of a fork dipped in granulated sugar to form crisscross pattern. Bake 9 - 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool two minutes on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Store in tightly covered container. Makes about 7 dozen cookies.
