    MARIE FRANGIPANE   (KHMG99B) Hi .. these are my favorite
   melt-in-your-mouth peanut butter cookies ... you grind regular oatmeal in
   the blender before mixing it into the cookie batter and they are the best!!
   Beat together butter, peanut butter and sugars; blend in eggs and vanilla.
   Add combined dry ingredients; mix well. Stir in nuts if desired. Chill
   dough about one hour. Shape to form one inch balls. Place on ungreased
   cookie sheet; flatten with fork dipped in sugar to form pattern. Bake in
   preheated oven 350 about ten minutes or till edges are golden. MAKES ABOUT
   4-1/2 DOZEN COOKIES    You can substitue vegetable shortening for butter
   and omit chilling the dough. * GROUND OATMEAL FLOUR (so easy) Place l-1/4
   cups any oatmeal (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked) in blender or food
   processor. Cover; blend about one minute; stopping blender occasionally to
   stir oats.  Makes one cup ground oatmeal flour.
        To make larger amounts of Ground Oat Flour, repeat above recipe to
   produce amount desired.  Will store covered in container in cool dry place
   for up to six months. These are better then the average peanut butter
   cookie and really do melt in your mouth!!
