Oh my, it's a beautiful day here (71 degrees and sunny)! You couldn't ask for anything better on Labor Day. Yesterday I mowed the lawn and did some much needed weed pulling, so today it's relaxation time. And what better way to relax than to do some baking while your little one is down for a nap.
Of course, since I did all that hard labor yesterday, I felt the need to treat myself with something sweet today. I decided to go big, I mean, what the heck, right? So, what says big like MONSTER COOKIES. Nothing laborious about that either, except maybe the laborious movement of dipping my finger in cookie dough only to eat it soon after. Check these babies out.
|Is your mouth watering yet?|
|Alright, so to begin, cream the butter and sugars.|
|Mix in the eggs one at a time.|
|Get yourself a creamy looking batter.|
|Add the extra goodies: M&Ms, chocolate chips, rice krispies, oatmeal, nuts , or whatever else you have laying around in your pantry.|
|Get your finger ready to take a dip into that dough.|
|Prepare the dough for some baking time (roughly 12 minutes).|
|And wallah: chewy, sweet cookies are waiting for you after your long holiday weekend.|
What a perfect ending to the perfect weekend. Nothing says holiday like sweets. Enjoy, and let the test nesters know how your holiday weekend went. Did you do any baking?
