world's best monster cookies

cookies Monster cookies are my favorite cookie. And these are the best monster cookies I have ever had. (My mom agrees, and she is kind of a cookie snob.) These are NOT your grandma's monster cookies. Unless you are my friend Chris. In that case, these ARE your grandma's monster cookies. (Please tell her thanks, again, for the recipe. Eric and I will never forget eating these at 2:00 a.m. when Roo was a newborn.)
