These Monster Cookies are nothing more than Mom’s Crispy, Chewy Oatmeal Cookies disguised with an excessively extravagant array of goodies added to the batter. There are no limitations to the possible additions to these cookies. The more the merrier I always say!

These cookies are amazing.

Besides being completely and totally ridiculously delicious, I’m pretty sure they even prevent wrinkles. Or maybe it was aging? I can’t remember now. All I know is… they sure bring out the kid in ya!

These are really good y’all!

Give ’em a try, but please be forwarned… they are frighteningly addictive!

Mom’s Crispy, Chewy Oatmeal Cookies October 3, 2012

These are my family’s favorite oatmeal cookies. They’re crispy, chewy and perfect.

Although I must say, when it comes to oatmeal cookie additions, we are a family divided.

I’ve always been one to like raisins and nuts in my oatmeal cookie. Drover and all three of our offspring prefer oatmeal cookies stuffed with chocolate. So whenever I make oatmeal cookies, I take a bit of the basic batter and add raisins n nuts for me. The rest of the dough is filled with any or sometimes every type of chocolate goody I have on hand.

Here’s how you make ’em:
169
Start by sweetening your butter with sugar.
170
Stir in an egg.
171
Add flour.
172
Salt.
173
Baking soda.
174
And oats.

At this point, you have a perfectly delicious cookie mix, ready to bake.

But if you want to dress them up a bit, you can add…
175
some brickle.
176
Or maybe some semi-sweet chocolate chips!
177
Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Date Cookies March 14, 2011

This cookie is a family favorite. It’s bite-sized, chewy and the perfect amount of sweetness to satisfy a sweet tooth without being overly sweet. This is the type of cookie that you can make the night before and it tastes just as good the next day. Great to bake and take. The base of this cookie is ideal for many different additions… dried cherries, dried cranberries or pecans would be delicious. Today I used dates.


Date Cookies
makes about 6 dozen small cookies

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 cups unsifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package 8oz. dried chopped dates (may substitute whatever you have on hand, i.e. dried cranberries, dried cherries or pecans)

Blend shortening and sugar until combined. Stir in eggs and mix well. Add flour, baking soda and salt until dough is formed. Mix in dates and form into heaping teaspoon sized – yes, I said teaspoon sized – balls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet (or line with foil) at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
