Sweet Ecstasy Cookies

These cookies are utterly insane. My mother originally came up with the recipe, and I tweaked it to suit my tastes. The result is something so addictive, it’s gone by some Not-quite-G-Rated nicknames over the years. When friends request them, it’s always “crack cookies”. You get the picture.

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut butter
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
2 cups cornflakes
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup raisins
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup chopped pecans
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips

Heat oven to 375.

Cream butter and sugars together. Add peanut butter, beat till incorporated and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.

In another bowl, mix together baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour. Add to wet mix, blend well.

In another LARGE bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour wet / flour mix into large bowl, and carefully mix till well combined.

Drop by tablespoon onto greased cookie sheets. Bake in middle / top of oven for 10-12 minutes. Makes 7 dozen (or more!) Cookies.
