Warning: These may vanish before your eyes. They also may appear on your hips. Either way, TOTALLY worth it!
1 and 1/4 cup flour (whole wheat or regular)
1 tsp baking soda
Mix the flour with the baking soda and set aside
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 sticks of butter or margarine, softened (use butter- trans fat is a NO NO!)
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, but I used smooth)
3.5 oz package of instant vanilla pudding and pie mix *Secret Ingredient*
Cream the above ingredients (Except the eggs) together. Then beat in the eggs. And lastly, slowly add the flour mixture from earlier.
Add in 3.5 cups of quick cooking oats to make a basic, stiff cookie dough
At this point, I divided the dough in half and added 1/2 cup of raisins to one half
And i added 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips to the remaining dough
Drop by teaspoons onto a baking sheet. Bake them at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
Let them cool on a cooling rack about 10 minutes.
In my case, cover immediately and save them to share at Bible Study and Small Group this week!
Enjoy these :) And play around with the basic recipe. You could add only chocolate chips, only raisins. You could add peanut butter chips
You could add butterscotch chips
You could add mini MnMs
You could add peanuts or walnuts or pecans
You could add dried cranberries
Just make them and eat them however you choose to accessorize them!
