Monster Cookies

or a batch of monster cookies.
Sometimes there are days when a cookie is just what we need.
Monster Cookies
Cook's notes:
My justifications for nibbling several of these yummy cookies are there are some healthy ingredients used in the recipe; peanut butter and oats. The recipe makes about 30 cookies. I used a small ice cream scooper to place each dough ball on the cookie sheet and pressed the dough ball slightly. 
  • 3 eggs 
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. corn syrup
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 TB. flour
  • 1-1/2 cups chunky peanut butter
  • 4-1/4 cups rolled oats or use a combination of rolled and quick oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate  chips
  • 1 cup M and M's
  • optional 3/4 cup each toasted pecans and toasted coconut 
  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine peanut butter with sugars and butter, beat until fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, corn syrup and vanilla.
  • Add flour, oats and baking soda. Mix well.
  • Stir in chips and M and M's.
  • Chill dough for one hour.
  • Make one batch and keep rest of dough chilled in refrigerator or freezer until needed for next batch.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 10-11 minutes (depends on how crisp you want the cookies). 
Option: Use holiday M and M's and Reese's Pieces  to create this monster cookie following the same recipe.

that a potato ricer can be used to mash bananas needed for recipes.
