- 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy cookie butter
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 cup peanut M&M candies
- 1 cup Snickers baking bites
- 1/2 cup Heath Bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper .
In a large bowl of a stand mixer cream together the Crisco, brown sugar, and cookie butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Mix in the egg white and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt and whisk to combine.
With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
Add the oats, dark chocolate chips, Heath bits, Snickers bites, and peanut M&M candies. Mix by hand just until dough is combined.
Use a small/medium cookie scoop, or about 1-2 tablespoons cookie dough, and place on the baking sheets.
Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes until the edges are just starting to brown and the top still looks slightly undercooked.
Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.
