Power Cookies

Got it's name because the cookies are HUGE! Everyone who has tasted these, has asked for the recipe. Their size makes them special--who can go back to regular cookies and be satisfied? I got this recipe from Barby, my friend.

Yummy! I am not much of a baker because I like abbreviated cooking - but these were worth the time. Made them with my mom.
