Monster Cookies

The cookie monsters that hang around my house really gobble these up fast!

Monster Cookies

1/4 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup M&M's (plus a few extras for decoration)

In a large bowl, cream shortening and peanut butter together and add brown sugar and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking soda, flour and oatmeal, mixing well. Stir in chocolate chips and M&M's. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons about 2" apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly by pressing the dough with the bottom of a glass and press three extra M&M's on the top of each for decoration. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or just until the edges of the cookies begin to turn golden brown.
