Best Cookie Eva!!
Monster cookies could be characterized as the best cookie ever, and some will stop at nothing to get their hands (or paws) on one. Whenever my mom would bake them it was normally during harvest, so maybe that’s why they remind me of fall. Not sure where the word “monster” derived from in the title. Is it because the recipe makes a huge batch, or the cookies bake larger than a regular chocolate chip cookie?
Fall puts me in the mood to cook and bake. So many cozy dishes and treats come to mind like chili, chex mix, caramel corn, apple crisp, all sorts of crock pot recipes, and monster cookies!
Sure, I’ve baked monster cookies during other seasons, but fall is a sure bet. Maybe it’s the fact that the kids return to school, so it’s an excuse to have cookies in the freezer for a quick snack, or perhaps fall means cooler weather (normally) so turning the oven on is o.k. again.
This recipe is one taken from Glenn’s grandma’s recipe box, hope you enjoy!
