Okay, I realize I've probably been living under a rock or something but these are THE BEST COOKIES I HAVE EVER MADE!! :)
I wanted to put something homemade in the Halloween treat bags for the neighbor boys and thought Monster Cookies would be appropriate. I found this recipe in one of my really old grocery store checkout stand cookbooks. They called them Giant Confetti Oatmeal Cookies but that was too much of a mouthful! Here is a picture of the neighbor boys in their Halloween costumes!
Caden is a chicken farmer and little brother Landon is the chicken! Their mom made that adorable chicken costume! :)
I didn't take pictures when I made these for Halloween because I had never made them before and wasn't sure if the recipe would be worth sharing. Sure was a great excuse to whip up another batch this morning! By the way, this recipe uses my Baking Mix.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups Baking Mix
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups plain M&Ms
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; mix well. Add Baking Mix and stir well. Stir in rolled oats, M&Ms and raisins.
Drop dough by 1/4-cupfuls about 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. I use a cookie scoop and put two scoops on top of each other and then flatten them out.
Enjoy your Monster Cookies with an ice-cold glass of RAW goat milk!! ;-)
