Are you like me? Do you have a hard time memorizing recipes? Well this one, my friends, might boost your self esteem in that area. It’s called 10-cup cookies for a reason. Why? Because there are 10 ingredients measured at 1 cup. All you need to do is remember what those 10 ingredients are! Okay, so maybe it’s easier said than done.
Whether you can memorize this recipe or not, they are worth making…and eating…and eating…and eating. We love the abundance of various elements within the cookies, giving each bite a bit of a tasty surprise. Raisins, coconut, oatmeal, nuts… the list goes on and on, until you reach 10. ;) Then again, you can eliminate any of these that you might not fancy, but you’ll have to call them 9-cup cookies. Are you willing to do that?
Ten of the ingredients measure at 1 cup each, giving this recipe its name. With so many components, each bite is sure to surprise you!
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly mix it into the wet ingredients until just combined. Stir in the oatmeal, then the nuts, chocolate chips, raisins and coconut.
Drop tablespoons of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
