Coffee Time!

 I had a nice day off today with no work and no kids. I did some basic things which needed doing...but when I was done with that....well....I decided to
 I baked just over 90.....yes I said 90!
Monster Cookies!
 Oh My....are they delicious!
Especially with a great cup of coffee from a fab retro pump covered in groovy flowers!
I must admit that I think between the cookie dough I devoured and the actual cookies eaten I'm sure it was
But hey, when you have more than 90 cookies all to yourself....6 or 7 doesn't seem like much.
Unlike my Kokeshi friend....I didn't even look back!
I thought you might like to have the wonderful recipe which will steal your heart.
Just remember you can split this recipe in half if you don't have an entire afternoon to be baking.

Monster Cookies

1 cup butter softened
2 cups extra crunchy peanut butter
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 tsp. baking soda
6 eggs
9 cups oatmeal
2 cups M & M's candies
1 cup raisens (optional)

Cream butter, peanut butters, and sugars; add vanilla, soda, and eggs. Add oatmeal, M & M's, and raisens. Bake at 350* for 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. (another side note, I think you can get away with using all one kind of Peanut Butter....I just LOVE the extra crunchy in this one!) Cool and enjoy! Cookie Monsters will devour with much delight!  :D


  1. The Cookie Monster is my hero and role model. Cookies! Me want cookies! They look yummy!

  2. These sound fabulous! I do notice that there isn't any flour in this recipe and how much oatmeal does it call for? Thank you ~ will give it a try once it gets cooler here to bake, was 104 today! Way too hot for baking! :-)

  3. To me that is the perfect day...can't wait to start baking in my new kitchen....we are finally moving into our new home....happy dance. xoxo Have a weekend filled with JOY!

  4. Oh I love the coffee thingy! And my housemate would love those cookies before, I think I've had something similar and wanted to eat about 40 of them at once ^_^

  5. Those cookies looks yummmmmy!! I love your coffee cool.

  6. Hey Rebecca, I am glad to say that there is no flour in this recipe!!! Yay! I am so sorry that I missed how much oatmeal the first time around....but I've corrected it now. It takes 9 cups!!! But it is SOOOOO worth it! :)

  7. Thanks Trisha! :-)
    Going to make these as soon as it cools down...still way too hot for now. Have a great weekend! ~ Rebecca
