Monster cookies!!!

Quick note: Remember to check out the website at

Yesterday Amy came to town and we baked monster cookies for her traveling crew!


Here they are baking... I've become a HUGE fan of oven thermometers! If you don't have one, I'd really suggest buying one. Ovens vary so much and knowing the actual temperature in the oven really helps.


Leftover dough? Freeze them in cookie-sized balls. Then if you have a craving for just one or two, you can just bake them up!


Thanks for letting me share your top secret recipe, Mom!! :)
Monster Cookies

2 c. sugar
1 c. (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 c. (1 lb) brown sugar
1 1/2 lbs. Skippy creamy peanut butter
6 eggs
1/2 Tb. Vanilla
4 ts. Baking soda
9-10 1/2 c. regular oatmeal
1 lb. M&Ms
12 oz chocolate chips

Combine first seven ingredients. Mix very well.
Add M&Ms and chocolate chips.
Add oatmeal (enough to make a very thick dough) slowly
Store in refrigerator for several hours.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, depending on size of the cookie. (Yesterday I baked for 7 minutes, rotated the pan, and then baked for 5 more minutes)
