  These monster-inspired cookies give you a little taste of everything in one cookie! Also, this recipe gives you the flexibility to choose the mix-ins you have on hand.
  2 c.   Peanut Butter, Chunky-Style
  1/2 c.   Butter
  1/2 c.   Crisco
  3/4 c.   Brown Sugar, firmly packed
  3/4 c.   Granulated Sugar
  4   Eggs
  1 tsp.   Vanilla
  1/2 tsp.   Salt (optional)
  2 tsp.   Baking Soda
  2 c.   Oats
  2 c.   Flour
  1/2 c.   Reese's Pieces
  1/2 c.   M & M's
  1/2 c.   Chocolate Chips
  1/2 c.   Coconut
  1/2 c.   Raisins, plumped
  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, cream together peanut butter, butter, Crisco, and sugars. When well-combined and fluffy, mix in eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine salt, baking soda, oats and flour. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well combined.

Stir in Reese's Pieces, M & M's, Chocolate Chips, Coconut, and Raisins. If you prefer different mix-ins, use your own creativity to keep it to 2-2 1/2 c. total of mix-ins.

Roll or drop 2-inch balls onto a cookie sheet. Thoroughly flatten balls of dough as cookies will not spread very much at all. Bake 15 minutes, or until cookies appear dry. Romove cookie sheets from oven and allow to cool on cookie sheets, to continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes out of the oven before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.

Note: If you are using natural peanut butter, do not mix in the oil first-- drain off and discard the excess peanut oil.
