Monster Cookies 1/2 Batch Size
Have you ever wanted to make Monster Cookies but were intimidated by the volume of ingredients listed ...Then this is the recipe for you. It is still 3 X the average cookie recipe and is great when needing a treat to share. If you would like the original recipe check out Dana's Monster Cookie recipe.
2-1/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter
1-1/2 pounds peanut butter(2 1/2 cups)
9 cups rolled oats
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cup candy-coated milk chocolate pieces (M&M's)
1. In a very large bowl, mix ingredients in order given. (Use hands if necessary).I used my Bosch Mixer
2. Drop on cookie sheet (an oven liner or parchment paper works well) about 5 cookies to a sheet with ice cream scoop and flatten. Or use a regular cookie scoop and flatten slightly for smaller cookies.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 12 minutes for larger cookies and 9 for smaller . These burn easily so don't overcook. Makes about 40 saucer size cookies or 8 dozen regular size.
Note: This recipe does not call for flour.
