Monster Cookies

January 24, 2013

The Preschooler wanted some Mom time in the kitchen today and insisted we make cookies, chocolate chip at that.  While she pulled out needed ingredients from the pantry, I looked through my favorite cookie cookbook – Old Fashioned Country Cookies from Gooseberry Patch – for just the right recipe.  I ran across one I haven’t made in years but I love!  Don’t you love rediscovering favorite recipes you haven’t made in ages?  I sure do, it’s like having an old friend come and visit.  This is the perfect cookie for me … just the right mix of crisp and chew.  A bit of crunch to the outer edge, but the center is chewy.   And my kids and their friends love it!

It is also a great cookie for when I need a flour-less cookie, because it calls only for oats, not flour.  And if you need it to be a strict gluten free recipe you could easily make those substitutes without too much trouble.

While the first batch of cookies were in the oven and cooling we played a round of Go Fish.  She won … 5 books to 4 books.  We celebrated her win by eating a few cookies!
