“Monster Cookies”

My mind is on Halloween now, between planning for the third grade party and all the themed things in the stores. But I am also thinking about winter. My writer’s group, the Windy City RWA, hosts a writers’ retreat every couple years. Next year it will be 3/3 – 3/4, and I am helping coordinate it. Have you every wanted to get away and get inspired to work on those books you started but never finished? Take the time for yourself. The early bird rate covers meals, a workshop with Barbara Samuel, and a lot more.

But back to now. Enjoy another recipe from the 1983 church cookbook I keep finding treasures in: Monster Cookies.

2 C. sugar

2 C. packed brown sugar

1 C. shortening or butter

6 eggs

3 C. peanut butter

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

9 C. oatmeal

1/2 lb. M&Ms (plain)

4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 C. chocolate chips

1/2 C nuts (optional)

325F  12 – 15 minutes

Mix all ingredients together by hand. Drop on greased cookie sheets and bake.

“Serves an army! Very nutritious!” I’m not kidding. It says those things. :)
