This recipe is different from other monster cookie recipes. I add butter flavored Crisco to it which keeps it soft for days.
Try it out!
1 1/2 cups creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated white sugar
8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, softened
1/4 cup butter flavored crisco
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&M’s plain chocolate candies
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray.
2. In a large bowl, cream the peanut butter with the sugars, butter and butter flavored crisco . Use an electric mixer to mix until well combined. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the oats, baking soda and flour. Then stir in the chips and M&M’s.
3. Drop the cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets until cookies are set. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
