Do you ever search and search for a recipe, try it only to be disappointed? I’ve done that several times. Well. My search for the perfect Monster Cookie is completely and totally over. I found the best. The funny thing is that I wasn’t even searching for it.
Remember we participated in the Antiques in the Park over Labor Day weekend? Well the people who were set up next to us had shared with us their homemade Monster Cookies. Kelli and I were so amazed. They were so chewy and completely delicious. To die for…SO-SO good.
Kelli and I continued to rant over the cookies and I asked if they had a recipe. She told me her husband makes them so often that he likely has the recipe memorized…happily he did and wrote it down for me.
Another thing I love about this recipe is that it makes a normal batch of cookies. I’ve always been frustrated with the recipes that call for a dozen eggs, etc. and I can’t fit the ingredients in the mixer. This one has normal amounts…granted it doesn’t make as many but for me, that’s okay.
Notice it says bake at 350 for 15 minutes. I figured that was a hoax but it’s completely true. It made sense to me now why they told us that they were so happy to have two ovens to make the cookies. Imagine only getting six cookies on a sheet and having to bake them for 15 minutes. It ends up taking a bit of time to make them.
Look at how awesome they look…..YUM!! They are definitely worth the time.
On another happy note, these are flour free so if you have someone in your life that is gluten free these can likely work for them. Do note that some people who are gluten free can have regular oatmeal…some need gluten free oatmeal. Kelli is lucky..she can have regular oatmeal.
These cookies are so good. I am done searching for a Monster Cookie recipe. THIS IS THE ONE. It will be the recipe I always use.
I’m off to enjoy one.
If you are a baker at all…give this one a try.
….and Hubby, if you read this…I’ll be pushing that extra stove in the garage….
