Cream butter; gradually add sugar. Beat well with an electric mixer at medium speed. Add eggs, peanut butter, syrup, and vanilla. Beat well. Add oats, soda, and salt; stir well. Stir in remaining ingredients (dough will be stiff). Pack dough into a 1/4 cup measure. Drop dough, 4 inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Lightly press each cookie into a 3 1/2-inch circle with fingertips. Bake at 350° for 12–15 minutes (centers of cookies will be slightly soft). Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks and cool completely.
Fun Fact: The Andy Griffith Show writers came up with various names for its characters and locations from the small towns surrounding Mount Airy, North Carolina, where Andy Griffith was born in 1926. Among the obvious are: Mulberry (Mayberry), Pilot Mountain (Mount Pilot), Taylorsville (Andy Taylor), Lawsonville (Floyd Lawson), Crumpler (Helen Crump), Walkertown (Ellie Walker), Jonesville (Sam Jones), Warrensville (Warren Ferguson), and Stoneville (Mayor Stoner). All these towns are less than twenty-five miles from where Andy grew up.
