Oatmeal Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chunk Cookies!!!

I made these cookies for my recent Cookie Exchange as they are a favorite of mine - plus they make a good size batch of at least 5 dozen.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chunk Cookies

3/4 C. butter, softened
3/4 C. peanut butter (I used chunky but you can use whichever)
1 1/4 C. brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 C. sugar (regular granulated)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. flour (all-purpose)
2 2/3 C. rolled oats (I used Quaker Old Fashion)
1 - 10 oz. pkg. miniature milk chocolate kisses

Beat butter and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.  Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, & baking soda.  Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.  Beat in flour.  Stir in rolled oats with a wooden spoon.  Stir in chocolate kisses.  Drop dough from tablespoon onto cookie sheet (I always cover mine with parchment paper).  I fit about a dozen on one cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.
