"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I recommend Jiff or Skippy peanut butter. Sometimes a cheaper brand or a natural peanut butter will cause cookies to run. Old fashion oats is best for this recipe for the same reason, quick cooking oats will cause cookies to run.

If you want soft chewy cookies...under cook them (about 10 minutes.)
If you want crispy cookies...cook until golden brown (about 14 minutes, or until golden brown.)

Other ingredients may be added, such as dried berries.
