These are really great, and really gorpy. Really yummy, kids adore them, adults go wild. Childish adults have been known to implode from enthusiasm.

These are the Gorpiest :) My 8 and 9 yo daughters helped make these and we had a ball! We doubled the chocolate chips and got 30 cookies (of various sizes) out of the batch. The whole family agrees...these are "keeper cookies". Thanks for posting!
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup peanuts
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons milk
Directions See How It's Made
- Before you start you should just know that the handfuls are adult handfuls.
- If children are making this then they should use 2-3 child-sized handfuls.
- Cream the butter/marg and the brown sugar till smooth.
- Add all the handfuls.
- Mix well, then add the flour and baking soda.
- Add the milk.
- Drop by tablespoons on to a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until done.
- Leave on the cookie sheet a minute or two before lifting them off, as they might crumble.
- The ratio of handfuls can be adjusted- you might want to go heavier on the raisins and peanuts and lighter on the chocolate chips, although why anyone would want less chocolate is totally beyond me!
