These cookies are amazing!! I love the crispy outside and the chewy inside. I found this recipe in a Winnipeg Free Press collection of Recipe Swap Favourites by Ilana Simon.
I measured my large balls of dough to about 2 tablespoons and flattened them with a fork. These cookies do spread out so make sure you leave enough room on your cookie sheet for them.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plus 2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups oatmeal
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
4 ounces (125 ml) Smarties
1. In a large bowl, cream together butter. Add sugars, cream again. Add eggs, one at a time. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
2. Make large balls of dough for large cookies, press flat. Bake in 350F oven for 12 minutes. Cool well before removing from cookie sheet.
Makes 3 dozen large cookies
