Monster Cookie

The cookie monster is back :) I just can't stay away from them... I love cakes but cookies are my real weakness. I saw these on brown eyed baker and knew I just had to make them. I made a few modifications as I didn't have all the ingredients to hand and they turned out really well! I have to say I much prefer the chocolate chip cookies which had a cleaner, simpler taste. Those are my favourite cookies to date and I would highly recommend them. Although I like peanut butter, I think the taste of peanut butter in this cookie was a little overpowering. Don't get me wrong, they were still very good particularly if you need a sugar hit! The other plus point is that this cookie is really easy to make as its a 'mix everything and bake' recipe. No need for any fancy kitchen equipment and if you're like me, you'd have all the ingredients to hand.
