This thread is not good for me. Not only will I gain weight but the old blood sugar will go through the roof. I do bake every year and then give it away.

Lyn, I bake some cookies too, and then I will eat one. Doesn't seem fair, but that's what I have to do. LOL I need to bake some to take to the bank, the post office and the fire department.

My wife gets the bug some years and cranks out delicious cookies. But it doesn't happen every year and it's probably just as well. But not counting the kids, there are 3 cookie makers in the house anyway. It's not like we are deprived. LOL

Monster Cookies

This is what happens when you watch the Food Network while exercising on the treadmill. I saw Paula Deen do these cookies on her show. I don't know why they are called monster cookies though. Because of the grandkids here, I usually do a double batch whenever I bake cookies. But as you can see from this platter, one recipe would have been plenty.
