Boy, what a week it’s been. I’ve been mentally stretched to my limit and the heat has not helped my attitude. Luckily my A/C was repaired today, so I’m back to baking – my personal therapy – and I can already feel things looking up.
Today’s #communitycookbookrecipe comes from my Grandma’s old book from 1988 – The Yorgason Family Cookbook and the recipe is for Monster Cookies submitted by Arlene Shulta.
I am from a big family. If you have any doubt just look at the ingredients in this recipe. Have you ever seen a cookie recipe that uses a full dozen eggs?!
Well, for those of you who don’t need 72 gigantic cookies in your life, I’ve adapted this recipe to create just a single dozen Monster Cookies. With the week I’ve had an oversized chocolate filled cookie is just what the doctor ordered.
