A few weeks ago one of the Scouts at church was holding a bake sale to raise money for his Eagle Project. I volunteered to provide some bake goods for the sale. Who can resist a bake sale?!
I pulled out a recipe I use to make all the time but haven’t made in several years.
When I was the president of the children’s organization at church the children would do a program once a year for the congregation. I would make Monster Cookies for all the children as a reward for their great job in the program.
If you are looking for a flourless cookie this is a great one. It does have lots of peanut butter! I used a 1/4 cup scoop so the cookies are pretty big – thus the name Monster Cookie! You can make them smaller using a regular size cookie scoop. The kids always liked the big cookies.
In addition to the Monster Cookies I made some Easy Sugar Cookies – a recipe I found over at Real Mom Kitchen. You can check out her blog for the recipe.
I frosted them with an almond icing. Just 1 1/2 C powdered sugar, 1 tsp almond extract and 4-5 tsp of milk ( I used whipping cream) and of course added some sprinkles for color!
I wrapped up three cookies in plastic wrap and then added a bow to sell them at the bake sale.
Because presentation is important at a bake sale I put my donations in a basket.
