Monster Cookies

This makes a ton of cookies.... you can cut the recipe in half if you don't want to be baking all day long (but who wouldn't want to do that???) and still end up with about 4 dozen.

2 sticks butter
2 c. white sugar
2 c. brown sugar
2 c. peanut butter - smooth
6 eggs
2 tbsp. vanilla
4 tsp. baking soda
3 c. quick cooking oatmeal

Mix in order given using mixer. Transfer batter to large container and add the following:

6 more c. quick cooking oatmeal
2 c. Nestle chocolate chips
2 c. nuts
1 med. bag M & M's - these can either be included in the batter or used on top

Mix until well blended. Form cookies -- I use large mixing spoon for monster size. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes 10 to 12 dozen cookies. Freezes well.
NOTE: Use smooth peanut butter as it helps to bind everything together.

Okay these are some of my favorites of all time and bring up all sorts of warm fuzzies of my piano teacher, who would make them at the end of each six week session to celebrate. Cookies and milk... we partied like that together for 15 years! And I lost her recipe so this one will do. On my list for next week!!!

I haven't made a monster cookie in I don't know how long. I'll have to make these for my grandson next week. Thanks.
