Monster Cookies

Well I am back, and yes, it's another cookie recipe. This is another recipe my grandmother gave me that we only make at Christmastime. It is a family favorite and anyone who tastes these cookies loves them! Be warned, it makes a LOT of dough. It takes a 5 gallon bucket to be able to mix them and of course they have to mixed by hand. You can break the recipe down, but we've found that for some reason that while they are still good when you break the recipe down, they just aren't quite the same.

1 dozen eggs
1 lb. butter
6 cups brown sugar
3 cups granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons white syrup
1/4 cup vanilla
3 lbs. peanut butter
8 teaspoons baking soda
18 cups quick oatmeal
1 lb. chocolate chips
1 lbs. chopped nuts
1 lb. golden raisins

Mix eggs, butter, syrup, vanilla, and both sugars in a VERY large bowl. This will need lots of stirring!!! Add peanut butter and mix well. Add baking soda, oatmeal, and chopped nuts. Stir in chocolate chips and raisins. Shape into balls and place on a greased cookies sheet (we prefer to line ours with parchment paper), and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. Check after 7-8 minutes.

Variation: Omit nuts & raisins. Decrease chocolate chips to 12 oz. and add 1 lb. of M & M's.
