Foodie Friday

Friday, April 24, 2009

Here is one of those "everything but the kitchen sink" cookie recipes. For a variation, it's also fun to use the seasonal colors of M & M's. As if you need one more reason to like them, because no flour is used, they are gluten-free. Caution: If you're not one already, these will definitely turn you into a "Cookie Monster". (I know that was lame but I couldn't resist.)

Monster Cookies

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 t. soda
  • 2/3 c. M & M's
  • 2/3 c. chocolate chips (Giuttard are the best)
  • 4 1/2 c. old fashioned oats (not quick cooking or instant)

Cream together butter, pb and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Stir in salt, soda, M & M's, chocolate chips and oats.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper (or waxed). Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350.
