Monster Cookies

I first tasted these fantastic cookies on a very sad weekend. My best friend's mother had passed away and I was in San Antonio to be with her. While we were out finding appropriate funeral attire, Heather's cousin was home baking. When we returned, I tasted the best cookie. Who would have ever guessed a 6'5" man would be a fantastic baker?

These cookies are always comforting and everyone always raves over them. The only thing is that you really need a stand mixer to mix them because the batter gets so stuff. This last batch I made was with double the chocolate chips because I had no M&Ms on hand, just as tasty, just not as colorful.

Monster Cookies

½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
3 eggs
4 ½ cups oatmeal (not instant)
1 ½ cups peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup M&Ms
1/8 tablespoon vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
raisins (optional)

Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips and M&Ms. Stir in chocolate chips and M&Ms. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Hi

How do you measure a 1/8 tablespoon of vanilla.

Sorry, since it is a recipe from a friend, the measurements aren't always great. I usually underfill a 1/2 teaspoon a bit.
