These are a favorite recipe in my household.
My daughter was in a baking mood yesterday and whipped up a batch of these scrumptious cookies.
I found this recipe at http://www.allrecipes.com/ , but of course I had to make changes. The recipe calls for corn syrup, but I put honey in its place. This is a no fail recipe that everyone in your home will love, especially a peanut butter lover.
I got lucky enough to find a monster cookie chip mix at a local bulk store in my area. It comes already mixed with candy pieces, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and white chips. Makes it very easy to prepare these amazing cookies. I have also added chopped walnuts to this recipe making them a little more rich tasting.
1 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. honey
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
4 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. butterscotch chips
1 c. candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
*opt* 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a very large bowl, beat the eggs.
Add the remaining ingredients in order, mixing well (I use my Kitchen-Aid for these cookies)
Use an ice cream scoop to put on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
I like to bake mine just until light brown, and once again, all I use is baking stones. I also leave the cookies sit on the cookie sheet, after baking, for about 7 minutes before removing to cooling racks.
