Phyllis,

I'm wondering if your Jumbo something cookies are a variation of Monster cookies (the recipe with picture is on the dessert site)

1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
1 1/2 pounds peanut butter (about 3 cups)
6 eggs
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla
2 teaspoons corn syrup
4 teaspoons baking soda
9 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups M & M's Candies

Preheat the oven to 350�.

Cream the butter, peanut butter, eggs, sugars, vanilla, and corn syrup until light and fluffy.

Add the oatmeal, a cup at a time, mixing well after each cup, adding the soda along with the oatmeal.

Stir in the chocolate chips and M & M's candies.

Scoop 1/4 cup size balls onto parchment-lined baking sheets; 8 to a sheet to allow for spreading.

With dampened hands, flatten each ball slightly.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are browned on the edges and fully set in the center. Make sure you don't underbake or they will fall apart.

Remove from the oven, let sit on the baking sheet one minute, then transfer to cooling racks.

Store cookies in an airtight container.

My version doesn't include dates, raisins, or peanuts, but it has M&M's instead. I'm going to try the recipe leaving out the M&M's and adding those ingredients, and of course butterscotch chips like you added. Let me know if this recipe is close. The recipe doesn't call for flour, and makes fabulously chewy cookies.
