My Own Cookie Recipe

I like to just throw things together when I cook/bake. I saw Martha Stewart just dumping vanilla out once and was truly inspired! I NEVER measure vanilla anymore cause Martha doesn’t do it so I don’t have to! This non-measuring technique can get carried away sometimes.

Monster Cookies

Yummmmm… I LOVE these cookies! I like to say that they are just about everything you could want in a cookie. Oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, m&m’s,… This is a modified Amish recipe, so you might want to cut it in half! This would make about 10 dozen cookies! It took FOREVER to make a full batch Saturday night, but hubby ate a lot of dough to help me out! 🙂 Monster Cookies 6 eggs…

I have also made this for brunch showers and the like and I get many requests for the recipe. So, here you go!…

I thought I would take a break from Christmas preparations for a minute and share one of the Christmas gifts that I am making. I am putting together homemade frozen dinners for my grandparents.

(Note: it is not cooked in this picture- just ready to freeze!)One of my batches makes 3 8” square pans…
