Treat Day Wednesday–Giant Garbage Cookies


Hi there!!!!!

I’m back, for today.  Big news, we are moving.  Nothing drastic really but we’ve decided that we want more outdoor space. So baking and blogging will be sparse for a while.  You know the drill when you are trying to sell a house.  You must live in a home you can’t actually live in.  Good times indeed.

So for some fun, I made these giant garbage cookies.  Meaning they are big cookies with tons of stuff from the pantry thrown in for fun :)  I saw a version on the Pioneer Woman’s show and I liked the concept so I made my own version.  I started with her base and then used what I had.  Her version is awesome too but we are a nut free house, not because we have to be, just because no one but me likes nuts.


Recipe: (inspired by Ree Drummond)

  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 cups rice krispies
  • 1/2 cup m&ms
  • 1/2 cup large chocolate chips
  • ideas you could throw in: raisins, chopped nuts, dried fruit, different flavoured baking chips (PB, white, caramel, etc), just have fun with it.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Cream butter and sugars together.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, soda and salt until just combined.
  4. Add the rest.
  5. Using a 1/4 cup ice-cream scoop,  place 1 1/2” apart on a parchment or silpat covered baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 12mins or until golden brown. 
  7. Let cool and enjoy!

I wasn’t sure about the rice krispies but I really like the extra crunch they give.  I may add them to different drop cookies from now on.


So I hope you enjoy these as much as the girls and I do.

Thanks for looking!
