Monster Cookies

Pin It
Chewy, peanut buttery, chocolaty & oat-mealy.  The kids enjoyed them after they got off the bus warm out of the oven.  Chris told me they were 'the best cookies ever' and 'the bomb'.  I think I'll have to make another batch (or double) so that we actually have some in the freezer!  It's so nice to have cookies on hand.  Enjoy & share with with your kids or a friend!!

Monster Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups peanut butter
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups regular oats, uncooked
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup m&ms
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Beat butter at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars beating well.  Add peanut butter, eggs, corn syrup & vanilla and beat well.  Mix in oats, soda & salt.  Then stir in chocolate chips & m&ms.  Dough will be stiff.
Use a large cookie scoop (or a 1/4 cup measuring cup) and drop dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets about 4 inches apart.  Lightly press each cookie with fingertips into a 3 1/2 inch circle.
Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes, centers of cookies will still be slightly soft.  Let cook slightly on cookie sheets before removing to wire racks.  Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
