10 Cup CookiesAre 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?

10-Cup Cookies

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.

  1. Think I’ve got it memorized already! 😉

  2. Those cookies look great! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe.

  3. I bet these are fantastic!!

  4. Glad to see the salt isn’t 1 cup as well! My sister did that once and my mom made her pick out the chocolate chips so they wouldn’t be wasted…These look great.

  5. Yum! Those sound delish!

  6. Easy enough! I love these and bet they’re super delicious!

  7. I’d gladly remember all 10 of these ingredients =) Sounds like a jam-packed cookie!

  8. But I only have two measuring cups…just kidding 😉 These look great and I’d have to eat at least 4!

  9. What a fun recipe to make with kids! I think I might do this with my class, challenging them to find all the other ways to make one cup. I’ll give them all the measuring cups EXCEPT the one cup and have them figure out what to do. Fractions are always more fun with food is involved!

  10. Very fun! and no I’m not willing to call these 9 cup cookies ; D since you asked. They remind me of my monster cookie recipe, sorta kinda. We are all about cookies!!

  11. I have a major weakness for cookies! So making these come the holidays!
