Recipe: Monster Cookies

These cookies are a Pioneer Woman recipe. I love PW. I was so excited to make these cookies! The ingredient list sounded amazing and the M&M's were so colorful--also, lots of oatmeal--love, love, LOVE oatmeal cookies!! Of course, I doubled the recipe because I have a phobia of not having enough cookies.....

I would totally suggest making these cookies if:

1. You like flat cookies.
2. You like cookies that are more 'Stuff' than cookie.
3. You like peanut butter chips.
4. You like cookies, period.

We were divided in my house over these. My boy thought they were the greatest! He loves flat cookies (you there, Carp?) I was hoping for something different. More cookie, I suppose. I think I will try adding various extras to my favorite cookie recipe to see if it's more to my liking. Needless to say, the cookies were devoured. Unlike a previous forgettable recipe.....
