MONSTER cookies!

I made a half batch of monster cookies last night for the church hiking trip tomorrow...and the HALF batch was too much for my large mixing bowl--I had to move up to our super large popcorn bowl! I used all four of my large cookie sheets--twice! It made four dozen large and four dozen normal size cookies...only make a full batch if you're expecting a huge crew! I remember my great aunt making these, and using an ice cream scoop to make the cookies--they were dinner plate size. I didn't make mine that big :)

Monster cookies
1 lb butter
2 lbs brown sugar
4 c white sugar
12 eggs
5 tsp baking soda
1 T vanilla
1 T corn syrup (I skipped this)
3 lbs peanut butter
18 c quick oatmeal (an entire canister plus 3 more cups!!)
1 lb chocolate chips
1 lb M&M cookies

Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in baking soda, corn syrup, and peanut butter, then the remainder of the ingredients. Drop by large spoonfuls and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

That has got to be the biggest cookie recipe I have ever seen! 12 eggs?! 3 lbs PB?! It looks yummy though, I think I'll make them but cut the recipe in 1/8.
