Big Cookies

Recipe by FolkDiva

Another favorite from "Towns, Trails and Special Times.....The Marlboro Country Cookbook". These are not your everyday cookies.....peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate, dates, nuts..........they are more like an incredibly delicious energy bar! A lot goes in to them, but they are worth the effort. Great to carry on a hiking trip or camping. Very hearty and yummy!

I was restless this afternoon and in the mood for baking so, encouraged by the reviews, I decided to bake these cookies. The second batch is in the oven, the first one cooling. I was curious if they turned out OK so broke off a piece of one of them and then soon went back to finish it off. They are really tasty, with a glass of milk - just perfect. And no flour! Thank you for this lovely recipe FolkDiva! I will make it again and again.
