Yummy Cookies

My "new" favorite cookie recipe:
Monster Cookies

6 eggs
2 1/4 c. brown sugar
2c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 ¾ c. peanut butter
2 sticks butter
9 cups oatmeal
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. M&Ms
1 tsp. Vanilla

Mix in LARGE bowl in order given.
Place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 until just begin to brown. They will not appear done. Let sit on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to cool. *Recipe does not call for flour
* You can use red and green M&M's to make them look more Christmasy.

This is the original recipe cut in half! I did 3/4 of the original recipe on Monday night and made 20 dozen cookies!!! So this should make about 15 dozen. You need a VERY large bowl! I love this recipe because it is delicious, but also because it is a smidge healthier than other cookies that call for white flour.

My husband took 4 dozen to work yesterday and all but four were gone at the end of the day. Did I mention there were 6 people at his work? :o)

Two other hints that keep me sane when making LOTS of cookies:
1. I have a dough scoop that I use to put the cookies on the cookie sheet.
2. Parchment paper. I know this isn't overly frugal, but you can use the same sheet on the cookie sheet for the entire time, you don't have to use Pam or some such cooking spray either. You also don't have the baked on cooking spray that is nearly impossible to get off your cookie sheet! I use scissors to cut the parchment paper, this seems to work better than tearing it. Remember to hang on to the parchment paper when taking your cookies in and out of the oven, so the paper doesn't slide off with your cookies!
