10-Cup Cookies

10-Cup Cookies - peanut butter, oatmeal, toffee bits, nuts, chocolate chips - makes a ton of cookies. Great for a crowd/party.

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!

  1. 4 eggs would make a cup (a trick I learned using egg beaters), then you could call it 11-cup cookies...hehehe. I think I am going to make a batch and freeze the cookie balls to bake small batches later. If I cooked 5 dozen then all 5 dozen would be gone before morning. So I only do 1 dozen at a time.

    1. I didn't know that? I'm going to measure them the next time I make these cookies! Enjoy the cookies!

  2. Do you think butter could be used instead of shortening?

    1. You could. It will change the texture of the cookies, but should be fine.

  3. What do you think I could substitute for the peanut butter? I don't have an allergy but was just thinking I might not want the peanut flavor all of the time. I am guessing it would be dry if I omitted it. Thank you!

    2. Baking soda contains sodium

    3. baking soda contains sodium (a.k.a. salt)

  5. Yum! This recipe sounds like something that my mama made one time. We called 'em "Cabinet Cookies" ... we threw whatever we had in the cabinet into the cookie batter! LOL
