Frankenstein Yums

For the month of August … yes, I know, I know that it’s currently November … I wasn’t quite sure what sort of devious treat to make for my Steepers.

After doing some fruitless searching on the big bad web, I remembered being told of something called a “monster cookie.”  I thought, “Hmm, sure would be appropriate considering that we’ve read Frankenstein.”  Trouble was, I’ve never made or even had a monster cookie before so I didn’t know what made them monstrous.  A cursory google search confirmed that YES! I must make monster cookies!

A combination of oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and m&ms?!?  These cookies were so delicious that I made another batch about a week later.  Also, the recipe makes hordes of cookies.  HORDES.  The recipe says 36 regular sized and 22 giant cookies … I got more than 50 cookies out of a full batch and my cookies weren’t tiny.

Anyway, I loved these cookies so much, they were soft and chewy with a delightful crunch from the m&ms.  While I try not to make the same thing for book club over and over, I’m definitely adding this treat to my personal recipe box.

Once again, I apologize for a less than perfect picture.  Clearly, my phone is no longer taking good shots … shoulda added an instagram filter.

Sadly, we’re so far removed from our August meeting that I can no longer remember just what tea I served.  I guarantee that it was delicious.
