Big crowd coming for the holiday? Want to bring your neighbors out of winter hibernation? Pass a plate of these their way! This recipe makes a heap of cookies so bake some now and freeze some dough for later. great for gifts or a party too!
  • 1½ Cup Butter (softened)
  • 2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tbs. Milk
  • 2 tsp. Pure Vanilla
  • ½ tsp. Pure Almond Extract
  • 6½ Cups Quick oats
  • 2½ Cups Flour
  • 1¼ tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 3 Cups M&M’s

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars until smooth. Add in the milk, the extracts and the eggs, beat until well mixed.
  3. In a separate bowl measure out all of the dry ingredients
  4. except the M&M’s (last step), stir together the dry ingredients then slowly add them to the wet mixture.
  5. Once you’ve combined everything else, then add in the M&M’s. Stir well. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a lightly sprayed pan. Bake one sheet at a time for 11-13 minutes.

Make sure you spray your cookie sheet or these may stick. You can also freeze the cookie dough for another time, try freezing it in ice cube trays for cookie size balls you take straight from your freezer and bake in the oven -no thawing necessary!
