1/1 Photo of Monster Cookies
After several flopped recipes I took what I liked from several monster cookie recipes to make what I like to call the perfect monster cookie. They are not huge, but normal cookie size. It has peanut butter, but its not all you taste. It is wonderfully adjustable to fit any picky person and they are wonderfully soft, even the next day!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter or 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 tablespoons sour cream
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1/2 cup M&M's or 1/2 cup smarties candies
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips or 1/2 cup peanut butter chips or 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
- 1Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
- 2Parchment cookie sheets.
- 3Cream Butter, oil and sugars very well in mixing bowl.
- 4Add Peanut Butter, Egg, Vanilla and Sour Cream in that order.
- 5Add flour and baking soda. Mix until just combined.
- 6With a large spoon or spatula fold in oats until just mixed. Do not over mix!
- 7Fold in M&M's and chocolate chips again until just blended.<-I like the Peanut Butter M&M's and semi-sweet chocolate chipits -- but whatever floats your boat -- as long as it equals 1 cup -- or a little more ;-).
- 8Spoon approx 2-3 tbsp onto the parchment. I use a medium ice cream scoop. Do not press down, they will become perfect in the oven.
- 9I press a couple extra M&Ms onto the top of each cookie to make them look extra yummy.
- 10Place 6-9 cookies on one pan, spread apart.
- 11Bake for 10 to 12 minutes The center will still be soft but sides will brown a little.
- 12Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 min and transfer to cooling rack.
- 13Viola and Enjoy!
