Ninety-Nine Milers

Category: Cookies
Difficulty Rating: Easy
Ultra Bad for You!

My sister Sarah (Beach) used to make these candy-laden cookies for her son, Nate's, track team. Nate is a fantastic runner who actually went to Nationals a couple of times. His Dad, Sarah's hubby Tad, coached the team. Sarah and Nate actually made these cookies up. Apparently, Nate got a little crazy one day and just kept adding more candy to the dough! They named them "Ninety-Milers" because they figured people would have to run ninety miles to work off the calories of just one. HOWEVER, if you have teenage boys who are involved in any sport, make these for them. They probably need the calories, and they will be a BIG hit! Circa 2003.

Ingredients:

2 sticks butter
2 C dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 T vanilla extract
2 C flour
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 bag Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips
1 bag Heath bar chips
1/2 bag white chocolate chips
1/2 bag milk chocolate chips (Guitard is my favorite)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix 2 sticks of butter with 2 C of dark brown sugar until creamy. Add 2 eggs, mix thoroughly. Add vanilla. Then, mix in flour, salt and baking soda. After completely combined, add any or all of the candy listed above. For the benefits of a full sugar high, do add all of them. Serving these warm from the oven with cold glass of milk is highly advised.
