Monster Cookies

These are very good. Make sure you use the smaller flakes quick oats (not the large flakes). These cookies have no flour in the recipe and so you can also make these cookies gluten free - you must be sure to have gluten free oatmeal. For gluten free you cannot use smarties so I substitute chocolate chips for the smarties - works very well.

My Monster Cookies
Monster Cookies Recipe
( this is a large recipe and can be halved )
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 cups white sugar
6 eggs
1 and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons corn syrup
4 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups peanut butter
9 cups oatmeal (  do not use the large flakes  but rather the quick oats with smaller flakes )
1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup smarties ( may substitute chocolate chips for the smarties)

In large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla, syrup and baking soda and mix together well using electric mixer. Now stir in the peanut butter, chocolate chips and smarties ( optional ). Mix well with wooden spoon.  Now add the oatmeal, just adding a cup at a time and stirring it in well. Set the cookie dough on counter ( where it is somewhat cool but not in the fridge ) to rest for 2 hours. Now drop by teaspoon onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 6 minutes. Don't overbake because they stay more soft and a bit chewy if they are not overbaked. Spread newspaper on counter. When you remove the cookies from the pan after baking, let the cookies cool on the newspaper. Store in airtight container in freezer.
