Tips for Tuesday

Oh happy day!  My sister pointed out to me that Monster Cookies are gluten free.  Since I wanted a picture for you, I just had to whip up a batch!




MONSTER COOKIES


6 eggs                                                  ½ teaspoon vanilla
2 ½ cups brown sugar (1 pound)                        9 cups quick oats
2 cups white sugar (1 pound)                 1 ½ pounds peanut butter
½ pound REAL BUTTER                        ½ pound chocolate chips
4 teaspoons baking soda                      ½ pound M&M candies



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix ingredients in order given.  Drop by large tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Put 6 on each cookie sheet and flatten with dampened hands.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Do not over bake.  Do not use substitutes for real butter. 

I say, why eat chocolate chips when there's M&M's around, so I skip the chips and use the entire 1 pound bag of M&M's!

Enjoy!

    Yikes! that is A LOT of sugar....I doubt i'd make these although they do look good but wow....TOO MUCH SUGAr!! And i'd replace the butter with margarine. yeah....we are limited our refined sugar around here...going totally healthy :) but they sure do look GOOD!

  2. If you're going totally healthy, you definitely want to get rid of the margarine. They say it's one molecule away from plastic! Anyway, this recipe doesn't work unless you use real butter. It does seem like a lot of sugar, but you could always substitute brown sugar for the refined. And it does make a really big batch. Most of mine are still in the freezer...shh!!
