Wyoming Whopper Cookies Recipe

These big country cookies are made to travel—in fact, I came up with this recipe while trying to match a commercial cookie that was good, but too crumbly to carry. —Jamie Hirsch, Powell, Wyoming
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups chunky peanut butter
  • 6 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups raisins
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Stir in the brown sugar, sugar, eggs and peanut butter until smooth. Add oats, baking soda, raisins and chocolate chips (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Drop on a greased baking sheet with an ice cream scoop or large spoon. Flatten slightly. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Reduced-fat peanut butter is not recommended for this recipe.

"Made these tonight. First, I would let the butter mixture cool to room temp before adding eggs or chocolate chips. My chips melted into the batter. Secondly, 15 minutes was way too long for my oven. 11 minutes, then 5 minutes cooling on the baking tray. I think I will drizzle frosting. Even though there's a ton of sugar they're lacking something...perhaps some salt."

"These are so good! Love the huge size. Perfect for a little gift to elderly and the young. My grand kids were so excited and also my elderly neighbors."

"These are good but I probably will not make them again; however, for those of you who are gluten sensitive, these contain no flour so they're gluten free if you use gluten-free oats. I'm sure gluten sensitive folks would LOVE these. They're just not my style."

"Great cookie! It has everything you could ask for. My kids call them cowboy cookies. Will definitely be making these again."

"These are the best cookies EVER! You can substitute different dried fruit - we really like dried cherries -- or use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet depending on your taste. I've also used creamy peanut butter - no matter what the substitute, they are great! I'd give more stars if they were available!"
