I cannot remember who gave me this recipe ... it was a long time ago, but thank you!

I used to make this for the crew when we had an exceptionally tough and long shot list for the day. Calories and sugar are important to getting things done with a smile on your face.

This cookie recipe came about when I filmed the original monster truck Big Foot, the truck at a Monster Truck Rally in the Kingdome - way back when - and the cookie became a "Monster" (not a "Big Foot").

The key was to double or triple this recipe, use margarine instead of butter, and both chips and M&M's. Then make ball of dough ice cream scoop size or bigger. Don't cook it too long, as it is meant to be a little soft'ish and it will tighten up as it cools.

I think they keep, I can't quite remember. If there were any left after a day of shooting crime scenes, my friend Scout and I would eat them for dinner.... Those were the days.


#1: Mix in a mixer, or by hand, the margarine, sugar and brown sugar

#2: Add the eggs and mix in. Add the vanilla and the bitters

#3: Add the peanut butter and the baking soda, baking powder and salt 

#4: Add the oatmeal

#5: Once mixed, add the chocolate chips. You could also use candied ginger, or other candied fruit. At this point you might need to add a drop or two of water to pull it all together.

#6: Use a Silpat, parchment paper or butter on a cookie sheet.

#7: Make large blobs of "dough" about the size of an ice cream scoop or two tablespoons.

#8: Bake in an oven at 350º F for 12 minutes. These cookies are happier when not too crispy. Unless you like crispy....
