Best cookies ever! You can cut the batch in half and make smaller cookies, but be prepared to freeze them, or eat them all(my choice). Very superb.

This is a recipe that my family has enjoyed for years! We add as many "extras" as we can - usually including (in addition to the M&M's & Chocolate Chips) butterscotch chips, pecans, and vanilla chips. I don't have a large dishpan, so I scrub out one side of my sink really well and use it.

I made these for a no-bake bake sale-we just sell the frozen cookie dough and they take it and bake it. My kids and friends were taste testing and just loved it. I made them normal size also for the bake sale and then froze some monster-size ones. A definite hit with the under 10 crowed ( and big kids too!)

This is a great recipe. I mix everything except chips and candy. Then divide in half. To half use the M&M & Chips. To the other I make "peanut butter monsters" using peanut butter or butterscotch chips and reeses pieces. This recipe has almost turned into a curse for me. I made it for the church bake sale many years ago, and now every bake sale I am obligated to make them, or face a very disappointed crowd! I usually bake up half as "monsters" and then I use a 1 1/2 T. scoop and freeze portions and put in ziplock in freezer. Great way to make a dozen or so cookies in a pinch!

These are wonderful cookies!! We took them to our family gathering, and they were the first cookies to go. We received lots of compliments and everyone asked for the recipe. Another family gathering is coming up, and we were told we HAD to bring these cookies. One thing - we don't make them huge, but make them "normal" sized. BTW - A dishpan is a must when making these.

Fabulous recipe. I made these for a fundraiser for the local wrestling club and they were a huge hit. I also used regular butter and old-fashioned oats. My kids and my husband now beg for these cookies.

These are the best cookies ever. Every time I make them I get ooooo's and aaaaaah's from all who bite into one. I always use butter instead of margarine and old fashioned oats instead of quick. This dough freezes very well. Just drop out onto a cookie sheet, freeze and pop into freezer bags for later use.

My biology teacher gave me this recipe years ago. I didn't like her much as a teacher but I did love her cookies!! :) You can also make regular drop size cookies, just make sure you check them between 10-12 minutes. They are especially good if you use super chunky peanut butter. Thanks for the memories Mysterygirl! I need to make these for my kids sometime.

I am very happy with these cookies. I like mixing everything in one bowl and being able to cook a few and refrigerate the remainder of the cookie dough till later. This is going into my favorites for sure! Thanks.
