Peanut Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup (overflowing) Big Spoon Peanut Pecan Butter
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup rolled oats
Chocolate chunks (optional)
Toasted pecans (optional)

Mix the first three ingredients together until fluffy, then add the vanilla and egg. Mix well, then add the peanut butter. Mix at high speed before adding the dry ingredients. Sift the flour, baking soda and salt directly into the mixing bowl. Mix at high speed until well blended. Add the oats, and Whip it again in the mixer. Chocolate chunks or toasted pecan pieces can be added here if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-9 minutes on foil-lined cookie sheets and and rotate them from the bottom shelf of the oven to a middle level halfway through.
