Birthday Monster Cookies

Today is my 24th birthday and being the cookie lover that I am it has been tough trying to decide what kind of cookies I wanted for my celebration. Finally, I decided since it is my birthday I should not have to choose only one. Instead, I made these monster cookies that combine a bunch of my favorite flavors into one awesome cookie. Honestly, this cookie has everything I could think of and it tastes delicious, too!

Recipe yields 24 cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup M&M's
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
1/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of your KitchenAid stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.

Add the peanut butter and cream until incoporated.

Next, add the egg and then the vanilla extract. Mix in the baking soda, salt and half the amount of flour. Once combined, add the other half of flour.

Using a big spoon, mix in the quick oats by hand. Start by adding your chocolate chips.

Then comes the M&M's, butterscotch chips, chopped walnuts, and anything else you might want to throw in there. Mix it all together to evenly distribute all those delicious add-ins.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop out balls of dough on the paper. I used my 1.5 tablespoon cookie scooper and I had 2 dozen of the perfect sized cookies. Not too massive, but thick and delicious. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Once the cookies are browned on the bottom edges, remove from the oven and let rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes or so before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.

These cookies are a real treat and I am sure you will enjoy them! If you manage to have any left over, store in an air tight container.
