Boy approved cookies

These were a hit with my boys, my husband and Jack's little BFF, Lennon. It's a super simple recipe from BettyCrocker.com

Jumbo Childhood Fantasy Cookies
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® peanut butter cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 cup milk chocolate chips (I used semi sweet chunks)
1 cup candy-coated peanut butter pieces (aka. Reese's Pieces)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted if desired (...and I omitted these)

1.Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl stir cookie mixes, butter and eggs until soft dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter pieces and walnuts.

2.On large ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls about 2-inches apart. Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown.

3.Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.


  1. Those sound yummy. I may have to give that recipe a try.

  2. I love Reece's Pieces!!! Gonna have to steal this one, too. But, I guess if you're sharing this with us, it's not *technically* stealing. LOL

  3. You make it very hard to stay away from sweets! LOL!

  4. Yum! Reese's Pieces is my favorite candy, so we're definitely making these!

  5. Peanut butter just happens to be my most favoritest thing EVER...I WILL be making these!!!

  6. These look so good!

    Have you tried any Syrian food? My friend is from there and gave me a recipe for Oozie that I made last night. It is awesome. I'm going to post about it tomorrow and if you ever try it, let me know what you think! Really, it's all about the yogurt sauce.

  7. P.S. I love your new layout and header!

  8. These remind me of the Cowboy Cookies my brother used to love when we were little!

  9. Oh, yum! I am a cookie freak! I'll def be adding this one to my "to try" file. I'm having my first ever recipe swap link party this Friday. The theme will be cookies so come by and join us!
