The Very Best Monster Cookies
Yesterday, I realized that I have been baking these Monster Cookies for 10 years, which made me feel…old. BUT not old enough to skip silently evaluating every single cookie and carefully selecting the one with the most chocolate.
Considering I grew up with flour on my shirt and chocolate on my face, I am sure I have many recipes in my life that I’ve been baking for longer than 10 years, but I remember the first time I tasted these Monster Cookies especially vividly.
I was introduced to these thick, chewy Monster Cookies by my first ever “work friend” (a.k.a. real friend who happened to have a cubical in my vicinity), Lindsey.
Lindsey brought a batch of the most perfect Monster Cookies in creation to the office and, as soon as I could come up for air after devouring what I told myself was three Monster Cookies but what was mathematically closer to five, I asked her for the recipe. She told me it was her mom’s and she’d get it to me soon.
I’m not sure how far back the recipe lineage continues (Lindsey got the recipe from her mom, who got it from her mom, etc.), but I would not be surprised if these easy Monster Cookies dated back to the invention of chocolate and peanut butter. They are perfect in that special way that tastes of the fine tuning of generations. (more…)
