For as long as I can remember, we have always had Monster Cookies around Christmas. My mom got the recipe from one of her college classmates. As kids, we would always pull our chairs up to the counter to help stir when my mom made them. Now, I make the cookies each year to carry on the tradition.
|All the ingredients...except the oats (oops!)|
1 pound butter
2 pounds light brown sugar
4 cups white sugar
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
8 teaspoons baking soda
3 pounds creamy peanut butter
14 cups old-fashioned oats
1 pound chocolate chips (12 oz. ok)
1 pound M&Ms
Mix in order given. Drop by large Tablespoons on a lightly greased pan. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350-375 degrees F.
Makes 20 dozen
**I use a smaller cookie scoop and bake mine at 365 degrees F for 8 minutes. They will appear undercooked when they first come out of the oven, but will firm up as they cool.
**Last time I counted, I got 605 cookies from this recipe!
