Soft Monster Cookies

Monster cookies. My daughter Ashley found this recipe on Pinterest. 

They are soft and include ingredients such as peanut butter, quick oats, m & m's and peanut butter chips. We found them to be a little crumbly, but delicious! Ashley, thanks for sharing these yummy cookies with us and any time you need taste testers, we're available!

As the recipe recommends, serve with a glass of cold milk.

Soft Monster Cookies
1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup M & M's
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 peanut butter chips 

~ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
~ In the large mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Combine the butter, brown and white sugaruntil well blended.   Add the peanut butter, mix well.  Add the egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.   
~ Add  flour and baking soda and mix just until combined. Remove bowl from stand mixer and stir in the oats, M and M's, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, by hand.  
~ Using 2 level tablespoons of cookie dough per cookie, roll dough into ball and place onto a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat mat or parchment paper. Press down gently as they do not spread alot, during baking.  
~ Bake for 9-10 minutes but no longer. Any longer and the cookie will not be soft. Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.  
~ Now pour your family and yourself a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
