I was going to make these cookies on Thursday, but am posting the recipe today because my friend Sara requested the recipe for today. I will add pictures later.
I got this recipe from my friend Kate. If you are gluten-free, these make a great treat!
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup M & Ms
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup raisins
2 tsp baking soda
4 1/2 cups quick oats
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. *
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand 3 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool.
* at this stage you can also place the cookie sheets in the freezer until the dough is frozen. Then remove the dough from the cookie sheets, place in freezer bags and store in freezer until ready to bake. Bake the cookie dough while still frozen. It may take a little longer for them to bake from frozen.
