Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

1 dozen eggs
1 pound margarine or butter
2 pounds brown sugar
4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup vanilla
3 pounds peanut butter
8 teaspoons baking soda
18 cups oatmeal
1 pound nuts
1 pound chocolate chips
1 pound M and Ms

Mix in order given.
Drop by tablespoons.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
 Leave on sheet for 2 mins or so before removing or they will fall apart. I like chewy not crunchy so I bake less than I think as they continue to cook a little after they are out. They look a little puffy but 'fall' after they are out of the oven. Dough freezes well or can be made into smaller batches.
I made a batch a little over 1/2 size for a bakesale and it made 45 medium scoop cookies and 18 large scoop cookies.
My medium scoop is between 1/4-1/3 cup and baked for 7 mins, turn pan, 5 mins, and then 2 more. Leave on sheet for 2 mins or so before removing or they will fall apart. If you use dough straight from fridge, it will need to be flattened a little bit with bottom of glass(wet with water in between) and will take a tiny bit longer to cook.

I prefer pecans for the nuts and milk chocolate mini Mand Ms (found in baking aisle) and milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet.

These cookies are easy to freeze if they make it that far! Bring to room temperature before serving.
