Day 2: 30 Days of Creativity - new LJC cookie recipe - Dad's Super Mountain Cookies

For Day 2 of 30 Days of Creativity, I made cookies.

Not just any cookies.

I have been experimenting with cookie recipes for awhile now. My dad is what you might call a connoisseur of cookies, so he has been testing them and providing feedback. For him more is better so each time it's a new ingredient to be added "How about raisins AND coconut?"

And so I present to you Dad's Super Mountain Cookies. They have oats, chocolate chips, walnuts, raisins, coconut and... my final genius ingredient... pretzel bits!

Here is my recipe.

Dad's Super Mountain Cookies

2 sticks of butter

1 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of white sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup oats

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup raisins

1 cup coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup pretzel bits

Cream together softened butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in everything else. Bake those babies for 14 min at 350 degrees.(you may have to adjust that time - my oven is weird)


  1. Those look DELICIOUS!
    Once I am done with my diet, I will have to make these!

  2. mmm these look good. those crazy milk carton creatures look like they're going to eat all your cookies.

  3. Ummm, how you say...YES PLEASE!!! I am sure these would make it to the desert!
