You ask, "Why are they called monster cookies?"... well, I think there are several ways to answer that question. One answer may be "Well, considering this recipe makes approximately 32 dozen cookies, it is a MONSTER batch!". Or perhaps, I could answer "Have you ever seen the cute little blue cookie monster on Sesame Street? Well, I feel as crazy as him when these cookies are placed in front of me... Just call me the cookie MONSTER!" Any way you look at it, MONSTER COOKIES is a deserving title! You could certainly 1/2 this recipe, but I prefer to make the whole recipe and freeze a bunch of the dough in logs so that it can be taken out of the freezer, cut and baked when you're in a pinch. I love to use the cute seasonal M&M's in these cookies. Because I had never baked the whole batch at once, I actually did that yesterday just so I could let you know how many cookies to expect to make. So 32 dozen it was!!! Enjoy!

Monster Cookies

12 eggs
2 lbs brown sugar
4 cups white sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. karo syrup
8 tsp. baking soda
1 lb butter, no substitutes
3 lbs peanut butter ( I used 2 lbs creamy and 1 lb crunchy)
18 cups quick oatmeal
1 pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 bags M&M's

Mix in order. Drop by small cookie scoop onto SILPAT lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. (9 mins was perfect for me)Do NOT overbake! Can press dough into logs, wrap tightly and freeze. Just cut and cook when needed...

Happy Cooking!
