You may not know this about me, but I live with a monster. A cookie monster that is! Chicken Legs loves cookies more than anyone I know. He loves them all. Chocolate chip, oatmeal, almond, coconut. As long as it is a cookie, he is all for it!
These cookies have something for everyone. There is chocolate, oatmeal, toffee bits, pecans, coconut and peanut butter. They are amazing! They are called 10 cup cookies because the 10 main ingredients are all exactly one cup each. Easy to remember! If you aren't a fan of one of the mix ins, just swap it for something else. Raisins, butterscotch chips, dried cranberries, white chocolate chips - get creative!
