Geneva cookies

Made some cookies on my lunch break today.  We call them Geneva cookies because the recipe came from my friend, Geneva.

Geneva's recipe came from her mom who would make them when she was growing up when the family was going camping or hiking. They're like energy bars/cookies and they're awesome.

Geneva cookies

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1-1/6 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking soda
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups peanut butter
4-1/2 cups oatmeal
3 oz chocolate chips
raisins (optional)

Mix together, adding the oatmeal last.  Scoop rounded spoonfuls onto baking sheet and flatten to 1/4 inch thickness. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Makes about 4-1/2 dozen cookies.

I usually have to add a bit more oatmeal (we have moist air) and never add the raisins (I have some picky eaters that don't like raisins, but I imagine it would be good).  And I don't flatten them being a bit of a lazy baker and they turn out fine for me.
