Mat's Latest Obsession

Someone in one of Mat's classes brought some Mookies. He came home that night and HAD to make us some....I have to admit they were OH SO YUMMY. They are a mix between Muffins and Cookies ...and we ate some hot out of the oven with ice cream. DE-LISH!

The Mookie Cookie
Prep & Cook time: about 40 minutes
Makes: 16 Giant cookies

1 cup (1/2 lb) butter or marg, at room temp
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups regular rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup each sweetened shredded dried coconut and raisins (optional)

1. Mix butter and brown sugar until thoroughly blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine oats, flour, salt, and bkg powder. Blend oat mixture and butter mixture. Stir in walnuts, coconut, and raisins.
2. Pack cookie dough into an ice cream scoop (4 oz size), 1/2 cup measuring cup (we liked them this way) scrap dough level with rim, and empty onto lightly oiled baking sheets, spacing dough about 3 inches apart. OR pack dough into muffin tins.
3. Bake at 350 until cookie edges are golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool cookies on a rack; serve, or store airtight up to 2 days.
