Monster Cookies

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.

Monster Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
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.

 Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.


Enjoy your Monster Cookies with an ice-cold glass of RAW goat milk!! ;-)

Candy,
Those look soooo good and served warm with that raw goat's milk would be heavenly. I can't believe how BIG they are. Your neighbor boys look adorable in their costumes. I bet they enjoyed those cookies alot. I also like that I can use your baking mix for this recipe. I'll have my grandson next week and I know we will have to make a batch.

Candy, those look fabulous. My kids would love this recipe! It is wonderful that your baking mix is so versatile; I notice you are able to use it in most anything.

Have a good evening. :)

The boys are so cute. Cookies look great. I am always looking for new recipes. Raw goat milk,? Not sure about that one.But then I have never had it.

Candy C. said...

Nancy,
I sure do like them! :)

Michelle,
The milk from our goats tastes just like the cow milk you buy at the store, it's all in what they eat and ours eat dairy-grade alfalfa and goat supplement! It's really good! :)

Kateri and Caroly Renee,
I about died when I saw how cute little Landon was in his chicken costume! His mom sure did a great job!! :)

I have to agree, the chicken costume is adorble!

My Sister was a Monster Cookie fan when we were growing up. Sister or Mom made them often. As I remember they never lasted very long.
