Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

1 cup butter

1 cup peanut butter

2 eggs

2 cups oatmeal

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

2 tsp vanilla

Beat butter, then add both sugars, then the eggs. Add peanut butter. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Scoop into balls. Bake 350 for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven. I went about 14 minutes. Let them cool on the pan, then transfer to rack to cool. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips and caramel. Makes about 5 dozen delicious cookies

Strawberry Freezer Jam

Strawberry Freezer Jam

4 cups fresh strawberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 package {1.59oz } freezer jam fruit pectin

Stir sugar and pectin together in a bowl
Add 4 cups crushed strawberries. I put mine in the food processor and pulse them. That way it is still chunky and a lot faster than trying to hand mash. 
Pour jam into clean jars to fill line. Let sit 30 minutes until thick. 
This fills about five 8oz. jars. 

I like this recipe because it doesn't call for as much sugar as some of the others we have tried. 
Also you don't have to cook it so it is easy and fast. You can refrigerate it right away, for up to 3 weeks. Or freeze up to 1 year.
