Monster Cookies! 

So, it’s been awhile again…but for good reason!  Over the last few months, we bought a new home, and so we sold and packed up our first home, and moved into what we hope will be our forever home.  Our new home has an amazingly big, beautiful kitchen, in fact, the kitchen won awards for the builder!  I’m so excited to continue experimenting in my new kitchen.

These monster cookies are pretty easy, quick and delicious.  You will make them a lot.  You can also shrink down the recipe to make a quick batch for 2!  So if the mood hits on a Saturday night, you can whip a few up, and the kids won’t even know come morning (I’ll include these measurements as well).

Try these out and let me know what you think!
