      This a really good cookie, I like the twist with the peanut butter in them. I did make them regular sized though since I needed that size. A delicious cookie, packed with good chewy chocolate. I didn't use pecans, I forgot them and used plain chocolate chunks..Yummy! This was made for Fall PAC 2008.

      I was so looking for a recipe for monster cookies that didn't include oat-meal. Not that I don't like it. It's the fam ya know. So, when I stumbled upon this, I knew I had to save it into my cookie's cook-book here on Zaar. This is the first one I"ve come across that includes flour and totally eliminates oatmeal. Most monster cookie recipes are the opposite. This did not disappoint. I followed all your ingredients listed except for the pecans. Again, preference. TYSM for posting this keeper SC!~
