Monster Cookies

Need a cookie recipe to feed a crowd of hungry runners?  Say maybe a couple of carloads of marathoners heading to Indiana for the Tecumseh Trail?  Here's an easy (well, the stirring is a little arduous) recipe that makes 10 dozen great cookies.  A curiosity of the recipe is that it requires no flour at all and an oddly small amount of syrup, given the large quantities of other ingredients.


6   Eggs

2   Cups Brown Sugar

2   Cups White Sugar

1   Tbsp. Syrup

4   tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 lb. Butter, softened

1 1/2 lbs. Peanut Butter

9  Cups Oatmeal

1/2 lb. Chocolate Chips

1/2 lb. Plain M&Ms


Mix ingredients in a large bowl in the order listed. 

Bake 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  (Use two cookie sheets, starting with one sheet for 6 minutes, then rotating the sheets from lower to upper rack.)

Let cool on sheet for 1 minute then transfer to cookie racks. Makes about 8 to 10 dozen, depending on size.
