Linda's Monster Cookies
My sister is the original poster of this recipe so I've eaten the cookies exactly as the recipe states and they are good. BUT, here's MY tweak on the recipe which I yields cookies that stay chewy for several days sealed in a freezer bag or container without getting stale.
I never buy margarine because I like butter on everything. LOL So in place of margarine I used 1 Cup Butter Flavor Crisco. (This keeps them from going stale as fast as they would using all butter.) I also added 1 Cup of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter. That's it! Absolutely delicious!
Unlike some reviewers, my kids & I think this recipe makes just the right amount, about 50 Large Cookies (using the medium sized Pampered Chef scoop, heaped with dough.) We ate a bunch hot from the oven. I froze 1/4 of the cookies in a freezer bag, but alas, we finished the rest in like 3 days and pulled out he frozen ones right away, not even allowing them to thaw.
I use a Kitchen Aid mixer and this dough fills up the bowl to within an inch from the top. Stirring in the candy & chips at the end is a bit challenging, but worth it. I like pecans or peanuts in cookies so Maybe next time I will do 1/2 a batch with nuts for the adults & 1/2 without nuts for the kids.
