Monster Cookie Mania

My kids are blessed to have all 4 grandparents, all of whom know the Lord and love their grandkids. One of the fun things about grandparents, I think, is that they've gotten old and wise enough to know that time is precious. They make the time to enjoy being with their grandkids, no longer stressed with the ins and outs of the day. This summer my mom suggested a Monster Cookie Making and Baking session with the older grandkids. They LOVED it. We used to make Monster Cookies for the trip to see my Granny in Virginia. The recipe makes about 144 cookies. I don't have it with me here where I am blogging, but if anyone is interested, I'll post it. Warning: it involves ingredients measured in pounds, not cups!

She had it all measured out. The kids' job was the pour in the 'stuff,' and STIR with wooden spoons without breaking them. If you attempt to make them, you'll understand why no mixers are allowed.

The reward? A big wooden spoon for each to lick. And a few cookies. But unfortunately for these kids, their grandma was a teacher. She counted the cookies left on the counter before she left the house.

Love it!! . . . And anyone wonders why I talk about being a grandmother and can't wait to be one . . .

Ahhhh!! I am ready!!

In the meantime, however, the kids or I should say, young people in this house will be making homemade goodies also!

Yeah for summertime!!

P. S. Granny is coming to our house to join the festivities!

What fun! That's a perfect activity to do with grandma! This reminds me of recipes in an Amish cookbook that I have where the quantities are huge. I'd love the recipe. Jacie is spending a few days with Mimi and her cousins next week.

I have broken wooden spoons making cookies before so I can only imagine how hard it would be to stir pounds of batter.
