I made these cookies for a friend who was moving (she said it was the best drive ever) and as a thank you for friends who had invited us for a visit. My children each had one before the cookies were delivered and they said, "...Mommy, you should put these on your blog!". So, here goes- only I changed them a little to get them ready for the 4th of July*!
This is a family-favorite recipe from a favorite, family friend! My friend, Heather, first made these for us and we made sure to get the recipe before the left!
They are actually called MONSTER COOKIES because of their size. This recipe makes a BIG batch of BIG cookies- perfect for a crowd!
