Chocolate Easter Candy Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups of flour
  • 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk chocolate pastel candy coated pieces

 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Beat the butter for 30 seconds on medium.

Add both sugars, baking soda and cinnamon; beat until well blended.

Add the egg, oil, honey and the vanilla; continue beating until creamy.

Fold in the flour then beat on low until all the flour is moistened.

Stir in the oats and candy pieces.

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to drop the dough 4 inches in apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. (For smaller cookies, use a tsp to drop the dough and space 2 inches apart.)

Use the bottom of the measuring cup to slightly flatten each dough mound.

Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool the cookies on the sheet for 2 minutes before moving to a wire rack.

Makes 2 dozen jumbo cookies.

 

Variations

For variety, try adding 1/2 cup of coconut and a 1/2 cup of crushed pecans to the cookie mix.
