In the ‘kitchen of your life’, you have a choice as to what ingredients you want to use to build yourself up.

I have this very old, weathered, worn, spilt upon awesome recipe for chocolate chip cookies. It’s from a newspaper clipping, and I’m not sure who sent it to me, but it’s my go to recipe for decades…. and I don’t usually use recipes. But, because I’m a renegade cook and baker, I usually like to jazz it up or make massive quantities or BOTH, as in my many cookie marathons.

I haven’t made cookies in such a long time because that was always my Christmas marathon, but the past few years, I’ve been in Chicago all of December visiting family and friends. I sure hope I can make it out this year.

So… here it is.,,.Better Than Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (My variation with Snickers and salted caramel,)

Now here’s where it gets tricky. I always double the recipe SO… I used

4 c. Butter, 4 c. Sugar, 4 c. Brown sugar, 8 eggs, 8 cups flour, 10 cups of oatmeal (5 ground up, 5 whole) 2 bags of chocolate chips, some cut up Snicker bars, 2 tsp. Salt, 4 each baking soda and powder, Kraft Caramel bits (no nuts)

So, when you’re talking 18 cups of dry ingredients alone, you know it’s gonna get messy. More bowls were used in the production of this marathon.

The cookies bake better when chilled, so I made tubes to slice later.

(I also saved some dough mixture to make peanut butter, too) I put in the fridge to cool. The rolls slice nicely and uniformed for baking.

I ALWAYS use parchment paper so the cookies don’t stick or burn. I sprinkled each with the caramel bits and smooshed them on top and some chopped snickers and a tiny kosher salt on top. OMG! Best cookies I ever made. Yum!

The cool part is I still have 5 more rolls to keep in the fridge or even freeze a couple. The bad part is, I checked with my friend who is the McKinney Fire Department liaison, and she said the stations still can’t accept homemade goodies from the public… not even from Miss Toni. So sad… they are getting so skinny.

Look at the size of these cookies!
