Easy Monster Cookies



I am SUCH a cookie monster!  Always have been.

My sis-in-love, Vicki, makes killer chocolate chips and monster cookies too. 

I do OK with both of them...but she must bake more love into hers than I do because they are just always better than anyone's.  :-/

Since I can't seem to 'Match the Master', I was tickled to find this simple Monster Cookie recipe in an August issue of Woman's World magazine...using cookie mixes.


Specifically, using a chocolate chip and a peanut butter cookie mix - adding a few oats, butter, eggs and chocolate candies, you turn out one honkin' delicious Monster Cookie.

And no one, but you, will ever know.

(Unless you try to pass them by my sil Vicki=)

A great treat to make for the holidays - freeze them to have on hand when unexpected company comes by or to take to the office to share...or to send with hubby to work...or to take to the next party..well, you get the idea. 


EASY MONSTER COOKIES 

 1 pouch (1 lb., 1.5 ozs size) chocolate chip cookie mix
1 pouch (1 lb., 1.5 ozs size) peanut butter cookie mix
1-1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1 c. butter or margarine, room temp
3 eggs
2 c. M & M candies

In large bowl, stir all ingredients except candies, until soft dough forms.  Stir in candies. On ungreased baking sheets, place about 1/4 c. dough about 3" apart. 

Bake 12 - 13 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool 2 minutes; remove from baking sheets to coolling racks.  Store cooled cookies in covered container at room temp.
