Recipe: Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies: 3ten.ca

Monster cookies. Yes. 100% goodness. I made a pan of these just before Christmas last year – yet I made a gluten free version. Gluten free monster cookies – they are good, yet these ones are a bit better. Mainly because they are in cookie for and not bar form.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • heaping cup of oats
  • 1 1/2 cup of mini m&ms
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and peanut butter chips

First up – measure out and gather all of your ingredients.

Ensuring everything is ready to go and all measured out is a bit tedious at first, but once you make it a habit, it makes the baking experience so much better. Just pick up and go.

Cream the butter and sugars. Add in the peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla until well mixed. Then, slowly add in the flour and baking soda. Stir in the oats and 1 cup of the m&ms. Then mix in all of the chocolate and peanut butter chips. Save the 1/2 cup of m&ms to top the cookies.

Roll out and form into crab cake like shapes – you want them thick so they stay soft and chewy.

Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Don’t bake them any longer…then they won’t be soft and chewy.

They were a hit for those who I made them for…my mother-in-laws 60th birthday family get together. Maybe it’s because they are my family, yet they seemed to eat them up just the same. I guess they were good! Try them today and let me know how they turn out. You could even put skor (oh, how I love skor) in place of 1/2 the m&ms.

See you again soon.
