Rocky Mountain Cookies

I made these cookies a while back as you can tell from the Christmas colored M&M's and forgot that I hadn't posted the recipe for these yet.Having grown up near the Rocky Mountians I saw this recipe and had to give them a try We love cookies in our house and these were really yummy. They were thick and chewy and crunchy all in one with the oats and rice krispies running through them. If you want a new cookie recipe to try give these babies a whirl they won't disappoint I promise!!!

Rocky Mountain Cookies adapted from Mel's Kitchen cafe
1 1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple flavoring
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups rice krispies
2 cups chocolate chips
1-2 cups M&M's (I used pretzel ones but whatever kind would be fine)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl or you mixer, cream together the sugars and butter until light and fluffly. Add the eggs, vanilla, and maple and beat well. Add the flour, baking soda, powder,and salt.Mix. Fold in the oats, Rice krispies, chocolate chips, and M&Ms. Drop Tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto greased cookie sheets and Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden but still soft. Let cool on cookie sheet for a couple of minutes then Enjoy!!!
