I cut this recipe out of the newspaper probably 25 years ago. My kids were little, and it was a fun thing to make for Halloween parties. It makes a big batch.
A *BIG* batch. I had to buy that bowl just to have something large enough to mix the whole recipe up in. I put the gallon of milk next to it so you could have a reference as to size. :)
And you bake them into big cookies. BIG cookies. MONSTER cookies. :)
I'm sure they would taste the same if you made them smaller, but I'm not sure they could be called MONSTER cookies.
I posted the recipe several years ago over at What's Cookin' 4 Miles North of Nowhere. And I didn't forget anything...there really is no flour in this recipe.
I only needed enough today for dessert with the family and some for the kiddos lunches, so I only baked about 2 dozen today. Luckily the dough freezes well. I formed logs of dough onto large sheets of waxed paper, then rolled them up, and placed them on cookie sheets to place in the freezer. There were more logs than would fit on one cookie sheet.
After they had been in the freezer for a couple of hours and were chilled firmly enough to handle without bending, I used a Sharpie to write the baking instructions on Zip-lock bags. Then I placed one or two rolls in each bag. I plan to give some to Kasey to keep in her freezer for quick treats for the kiddos, and some to a friend of hers who I've been wanting to do something nice for...actually I want to adopt her, but so far she hasn't given the okay. :) Jared already took some home for his freezer, and I'll keep some in our freezer, too, to bake later.
They are fun to package (after they are completely cool). They look really cute wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbons.
Today I made them a little ghost-y, with tissue paper and googly eyes.
