Happy Flash Back Friday Friends!
This is my daughter Stephanie’s recipe…and it Ah-MAZ-ing!
Are you ready for this? The recipe calls for 1 CUP of batter for EACH COOKIE!!!!! (These cookies are EXTRAVAGANT. Trust me, everyone grins when they see them! They’re as big as your head!)
Only 2 cookies per cookie sheet! Wow!
The recipe only makes 6 cookies!
But wouldn’t these make a fantastic party favor all wrapped and tied with a bow!?
A little crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!
Stephie’s Monster Cookies~Gluten Free Easily
1 Cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1/4 Cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 Lg. eggs
1 Egg yolk
2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
***Use a gluten free all purpose flour like King Arthur’s or Cup4Cup in place of white flour***
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 Cup (really good) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 Cup mini M & M’s
**I checked and as of 7-2012 these were listed as gluten free-but check before you eat !**
Preheat oven to 350*
Stack 2 baking sheets, one on top of the other. Line the top sheet with Parchment Paper.
Arrange oven to 3rd shelf position.
Cream butter with both sugars till well blended. Add vanilla, eggs and egg yolk~ mix
In another bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt together.
FOLD the dry mixture in with the butter mixture. Batter will be thick. Now, FOLD in Chocolate Chips, Chopped Chocolate and M & M’s. It won’t be easy but contine to folding together till they are mixed.
(If batterr is too soft and greasy add 2-4 Tablespoons of flour…ours was just fine and didn’t need the extra flour)
Scoop out 7-8 ounces or 1 full CUP of dough! You can bake 2 per baking sheet. They spread so don’t put them too close.
Bake for 20-24 minutes. We stuck a toothpick into the center to make sure it wasn’t raw in the middle!
Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 15-20 minutes…
1 batter makes 6 cookies!!!
(This is the one and ONLY time in my life that I stopped after eating only 2 cookies!! Victory is mine!)
