Monster Cookies

If you like 'everything' cookies, then you'll love these Monster Cookies.

Oats, chunky peanut butter, and chocolate chips... YUM!


The recipe instructs you to drop by 1/4-cup measuring cup (hence the name, MONSTER Cookies). This method will yield 2-1/2 dozen LARGE cookies. I've never made them that way. I just make regular sized cookies, which makes just over 6 dozen.

MONSTER COOKIES

1-1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter-flavor shortening
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-1/2 cups quick oats (uncooked)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, and shortening in a large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Beat in eggs. Beat in peanut butter, corn syrup, baking soda, and vanilla. Stir in oats and chocolate chips with spoon.

Fill 1/4 cup measure with dough. Level with knife. Drop 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until just beginning to brown. Do not overbake. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to cool.
