Monster Cookies

IMG_2499

I got this recipe from the BRT at my school, which she brought as a treat for “Family Day.” These cookies were the highlight of my day. For the children and the family that came, they probably had a wonderful time… but for the teacher, this is a very stressful time. So I take great pleasure in the little things, like having the kids being able to sit still while I do lessons even though their parents are being distracting in the background. Or having five minutes to escape 11 hyper little boys to take a bathroom break. Or tasting this chewy, chocolate concoctions.

Ingredients:

Step 7: Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets until cookies are set because they will be too gooey and fall apart. Then, transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.

      The peanut butter is very light. It is a very subtle flavor in the overall cookie. 🙂
