Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

This chewy cookie is modified from my Fannie Farmer Cookbook, held together by duct tape. The duct tape is losing. I prefer my peanut butter cookies chewy and soft and I was so happy to find this one years ago. 

1 c. butter
1 c. applesauce
2 c. chunky peanut butter
2 c. brown sugar
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp baking soda
4 c. flour
2 c. rolled oats or rolled whole grain mix

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream butter, applesauce, and peanut butter together.  Beat in the sugars well, then add eggs and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to butter mixture.  Mix thoroughly.
Arrange by teaspoonful on cookie sheet.  Press each one flat with a glass or the back of a fork dipped in sugar.  Bake about 7-9 minutes, until firm.
