Monster Cookies

I really have never met a person who doesn’t like cookies.  We don’t make them around our house too often, but we’re road tripping it tomorrow and I thought cookies would be a good treat for the very long car ride ahead of us!

I originally made these cookies for the bottom of some cheesecakes. I had extra dough left over and made up a few cookies as well. The cheesecakes were amazing, so I knew the cookies would be good too.  The cookies were so good my husband ate almost all of then that night.  I had to save 2 for the kids lunch.

The best thing about these cookies is how soft and chewy they are. I think the key to that is just under baking them a little because they always cook a little more after you take them out.

Another wonderful thing about these cookies is how pretty they are. I love all the colors of the M&Ms.  They make a good dessert for company or for a gift for a friend or neighbor.

This recipe makes about 20 cookies depending on how big you make them.

I hope you try these cookies out, I promise you will love them!
