This makes a ton of cookies.... you can cut the recipe in half if you don't want to be baking all day long (but who wouldn't want to do that???) and still end up with about 4 dozen.
2 sticks butter
2 c. white sugar
2 c. brown sugar
2 c. peanut butter - smooth
2 tbsp. vanilla
4 tsp. baking soda
3 c. quick cooking oatmeal
Mix in order given using mixer. Transfer batter to large container and add the following:
6 more c. quick cooking oatmeal
2 c. Nestle chocolate chips
2 c. nuts
1 med. bag M & M's - these can either be included in the batter or used on top
Mix until well blended. Form cookies -- I use large mixing spoon for monster size. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes 10 to 12 dozen cookies. Freezes well.
NOTE: Use smooth peanut butter as it helps to bind everything together.
