The smell of cookies… Today the Fuller home was seasoned by Monster Cookies. The only thing that is scary about these cookies is the amount you may consume. Personalize your cookies with colorful M&Ms. Today I used V-Day M&Ms but how fun to use your favorite team colors for the Super Bowl. Pour a cold glass of milk and you are set!
For the Cookie Monster in all of us!- AF
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup and 2 T brown sugar, firmly packed
2 cups peanut butter
1 t corn syrup
1/4 t vanilla
4 1/2 cups regular oats, uncooked
2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 cup M&Ms (get crazy with your colors)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Begin to add sugars, beating well. Add peanut butter, eggs, syrup and vanilla. Mix well. Add oats, soda, and salt; stir well. Now stir in M&Ms and chocolate chips. Dough will be stiff.
Pack dough into a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Drop dough 4 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Lightly press each cookie with fingertips into a 3 1/2-inch circle.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes (the center of cookies should be slightly soft). Cool slightly on cookie sheet. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
