Monster Cookies

Zach is going on a road trip and needs sustenance!  And by sustenance I of course mean cookies!

These are flourless cookies for anyone looking for a recipe that falls within that category.  This is another recipe that I’ve had for awhile and so can’t remember where it came from.

1 cup sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup peanut butter (I use chunky peanut butter and then omit the nuts listed below)

1/2 cup butter, softened

3 eggs

4 1/2 cups quick cooking rolled oats

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips (or butterscotch, peanut butter or white chocolate chips)

1 cup M & M’s (or Reeses Pieces)

1 cup chopped peanuts (or walnuts or pecans)

1/2 cup raisins (why ruin perfectly good cookies by adding fruit?)

Heat oven to 350.  Combine sugars, peanut butter and butter and beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add oats and baking soda and mix well.  (I actually added an additional 1/2 cup oats here because my dough was too sticky.)  Stir in chips, candy, nuts and raisins.  (Our preferred combo is chocolate chips and Reeses Pieces.)  Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 1/2″ apart onto ungreased cookie sheets (using a cookie scoop works best).

Bake 11 – 14 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool two minutes then remove from sheets.
