Monster Cookies

We have had this monster cookies recipe for years now and I still love it.

We've had this recipe for years, so you know it's good! These Monster Cookies are a family favorite and can be whipped up in minutes.

Paula Deen has the same recipe so we know it must be delicious and fattening.

You don’t have to add the raisins if you don’t want to, but we love them!

Can Cookie Dough Be Frozen?

Cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.

You can form dough into a ball and freeze the whole batch in a freezer container.

Or, you can form individual cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for  hours.

When frozen, transfer the cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag.

How Long Will Cookies Keep In the Freezer?

Cool cookies completely and freeze on a cookie sheet.

When frozen, transfer cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

What Can You Substitute For Brown Sugar?

You can use white sugar in equal amounts, but your cookies will be a little crisper.

Or, you can add 2 tablespoons molasses to every cup of substituted white sugar and you will not be able to tell the difference.
