This recipe was just given to me by a friend we all know as "Cookie Steve". It makes the absolute best cookies I've ever had. This recipes makes a wagon-load and they are not for weight watchers. You'll need a huge bowl or pan to mix these in.
2 cups butter 2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups white sugar 2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups brown sugar 2 cups oats
4 eggs 2 cups bran flakes
2TBLS. vanilla 1 cup raisins / 1 cup pecans / 1 cup coconut
4 cups flour 1 12-oz. pkg. chocolate chips
1/2 tsp. salt 1 6-oz. pkg. peanut butter chips
Beat butter and sugars together until blended. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt baking power and soda; gradually add to sugar mixture and still well. Stir in remaining incredients. Drop cookies with a 1/4 cup measuring cup onto lightly greased cookie sheet. 6 to a sheet Bak eat 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Store in containger between sheets of wax paper.
Note: Cookie Steve died just before Christmas, 2010. He will be most remembered for his gift of cookies on birthday night and his generousity with his time and patience. I'll always think of Cookie Steve when I make this recipe. Rest in peace good buddy!
