Jumbo Breakfast Cookies Jumbo Breakfast Cookies

Serving: 24 big cookies

Prepration Time: 22 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins
  • 6 cups toasted oat cereal rings (such as Cheerios)

Methods / Prepration

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • In a very large bowl, mix together the sugar, peanut butter, butter, water, vanilla and eggs until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter. Mix in the oats and raisins, then carefully stir in the cereal. Drop 1/2 cupfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets, spacing cookies about 4 inches apart. Flatten cookies to 1 inch thick.
  • Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are lightly browned at the edges. Let stand on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Store at room temperature. I like to put each cookie into a sandwich bag which makes them easy to grab on the way out the door.
