Political Season...Political Cookies

Ann Romney's cookie recipe is delicious!  Big, impressive
cookies filled with M&M candies, chocolate chips, crunchy peanut butter
and oatmeal make for lots of chewing!

Gave these to some neighbors who love our baked goods! Small bags and
decorated tags make for a creative and fun finished product!

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup ( 1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup (such as Karo)
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
6 ounces chocolate chips
2/3 cup M&M's candies

Heat oven to 325 degrees F.  In a large bowl, cream sugars, butter, peanut buter and corn syrup on high speed until well combined.  Beat eggs 1 at a time.  Beat in vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl, mix together oats and baking soda.  Stir into peanut butter mixture until combined.  Mix in chocolate chips and M&M's. 

Using a standard-size ice cream scook, drop dough onto baking sheets (about 9 per sheet).
 Bake at 325 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield: about 24 good size cookies
