Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C margarine, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/3 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C chunky peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 C flour
1/2 C old-fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 C semisweet chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars; beat in peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

I think the key to good cookies is to take them out of the oven before they really look done. If you want soft cookies, take them out when they are just barely starting to brown around the edges.
