Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!!

Tomorrow Roy is having a Christmas lunch at work and everyone was asked to bring something. I decided to drag out the cookbooks and make a dessert I have never made before. I settled on making Paula Deen's Monster Cookies. They are delicious!! The receipe made enough cookies to feed a small army, but that just means I get to keep some at home :)

Monster Cookies


6 eggs

2 1/2 cups, packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 24-ounce jar of creamy peanut butter

1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, softened

8 ounces M & M's

8 ounces chocolate chips

1/2 cup raisins (optional)

4 teaspoons baking soda

9 cups quick-cooking oats

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.

2. In a VERY large bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the M & M's, chocolate chips, raisins, baking soda, and oatmeal.

3. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

If you want to make some cookies, but are not sure what kind these are perfect because they combine all different kinds together!!
