- 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.
Stovetop Skillet Sweets
When you are a baker and your oven decides to go kaput, you have two choices: 1) take a week off baking—which is never gonna happen or 2) use a different method. Enter the stovetop. With “her” help and a nonstick pan, our favorite oatmeal cookies will get a new spin on life. Stovetop Skillet Cookies. #winning!!!
Ultimate Sweet Sharing
Do you have a recipe that others continually ask you to share? And by share they mean deliver ready made to them? Our Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies are probably the most requested goodie we make. However, in our opinion they are best served fresh out of the oven. So, we came up with a way to grant these wishes. By freezing the cookie dough into tablespoon-sized balls they can be simply plopped onto a cookie sheet, baked in the oven, and ready to devour in 7 to 9 minutes! These make fabulous gifts too. Package them in a ziplock inside a festive take-out container. You can thank us later!
Make a batch of Sister Sweetly’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe . Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet into the freezer until the balls are completely frozen. Remove the balls from the freezer and put into ziplock bags labeled with baking instructions:
Bake at 325 for 7-9 min
Put back into the freezer until ready to share.

We used to hate it when we’d ask our mom what we were having for dinner and she would reply, “Whatever you can find.” We renamed this dinner WYCF. And wouldn’t you know it -we still have it, but this time were the moms saying it! We’re applying this approach to our treat this week, except there’s no dislike involved. Our baking kitchens are full of all kinds of goodies and nothing is off limits. We’re loving every bite of our WYCF Brownie Parfaits!
