1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks), softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 T. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsps. salt (I say 1 tsp. salt!)
1 1/2 cups oats (quick or regular)
1/2 cup M & M's
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup Peanut butter chips (I didn't have them, so I didn't put them in)
I added some white chocolate chips and about 1/2 cup toffee bits
2 1/4 cup Rice Krispies ( I didn't have that much, so added less. It was fine)
Heat oven to 375.
Cream the butter with the sugars until fluffy. Add eggs, beating well after each. Add the vanilla and beat well.
Combine the flour, salt, soda , and baking powder. Add to the mixing bowl and blend well. Then turn off the mixer and add whatever ingredients you like. the amounts are just suggestions. Mix in. Then add the Rice Krispies and blend until just combined- don't overmix.
Scoop big cookies onto a sprayed cookie sheet- or lined with a silpat. Bake until golden brown- but not overbaked.
