MONSTER COOKIES~

MONSTER COOKIES
For those of you who requested my MONSTER COOKIE recipe here it is...

4 cups all purpose flour (I use KING ARTHUR)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 sticks BUTTER softened
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
2 Large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract, NOT imitation
1 cup  TOLL HOUSE milk chocolate morsels
1 cup  TOLL HOUSE semi sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup  TOLL HOUSE dark chocolate morsels
1 package REECE'S mini pieces ( I found the mini REECE'S Halloween colored pieces at Target)

preheat oven to 375*

Combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugars till creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop dough by level 1/4 cup measure 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown... (I routinely use either tin foil or parchment paper on my cookie sheets. I bake my cookies at 350* for exactly 13 minutes.)  This I find works best for me, my oven is electric. Your cookies will be chewy on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside. I promise they will not last long! ENJOY!

I will be making these cookies. I love making giant cookies and I love all of the wonderful goodies you have in them. They do look like giant Halloween cookies with all of those colors. Thanks for the recipe!

If your eye causes you to sin, better pluck it out....
I think that I better pluck my eyes out because those cookies could cause me to sin big time. They look too tempting and I can feel the sugar rush already.

They are big but I don't think that I could stop at just one...
