Default Easy Cookie recipe for a crowd

I am having an Art Open House for my school and need lots of cookies. Does anyone have a recipe that can be doubled or tripled that is relatively easy but a "wow" cookie? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Do you think the coconut was a must have for the recipe? From the directions I think I could handle those. Thank you!

You could definitely leave out the coconut. I might increase the other "goodies" like the oatmeal or the cereal a little though.

I can attest - StampgirlJo's monster cookies are YUMMY! It's everything good in one cookie. You can also make them smaller. You can also freeze uncooked dough for later. Great recipe.

These monster cookies are just like the frozen ones Schwan's delivers right to my door, and they are already in balls ready for the oven!!

Thanks, I am on my way to the store for some ingredients. I will make several batches over the course of the next two weeks and freeze them until that day. I am a cookie dough lover though, I just can't keep out of it as I make cookies! Both recipes sound wonderful. Thanks again!

Hi-- I'm seeing your post a day late, but if you're still looking for a great cookie recipe I'm happy to share "Almost Mrs. Field's" cookies. The recipe makes 11 dozen-- loaded with oatmeal, chocolate chips, pecans. I made them for the first time a couple of weeks ago, just to use up some extra ingredients. The response was very positive from everyone with whom I shared! If this interests you, please let me know! LCM

Well, I just finished the monster cookies, they are awesome! I wrote down the recipe and then about paniced when I was making them and there wasn't any flour in the recipe. I quickly ran to the computer to make sure I copied it right. Made a huge batch. I will try Beth's recipe in the next few nights. I love Mrs. Field's cookies so if you want to share that recipe, that would be great Laurie. I really do appreciate the shared recipes. Some teacher friends have offered to make some batches too but it is my goal to have about 20 dozen made in the next few weeks.

ALMOST MRS. FIELDS COOKIES
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 8 minutes per cookie sheet
Yield: 11 dozen

1 lb. butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 cups sifted flour
5 cups uncooked oatmeal (may be ground in a food processor)
3 cups chopped nuts
24 oz. chocolate chips
1 8 oz. chocolate candy bar, grated (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350.
With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together in a large bowl.
Add beaten eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Mix together baking powder, baking soda and flour. Blend into sugar mixture.
Stir in oatmeal (ground or ungroun), nuts, chocolate chips and optional grated chocolate bar.
Roll the dough into 2" balls.
Place 2 " apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove to a rack and cool.
Note: This recipe may be cut in half very successfully. (Oh yea, NOW I'm reading the fine print!!-- I have a few dozen in my freezer because I had so many!!)
My added note: I baked them longer than 8 minutes, because they didn't appear done enough. Although they are quite delicious, next time I would keep the baking time between 8 and 10 minutes, for maximum moistness.
I do hope you enjoy these! Good luck with all of your baking! Laurie

I forgot to mention that I used a mixture of chocolate chips-- I had a partial bag of the very tiny Nestle chips, some milk chocolate chips, and regular sized baking semi sweet chips. ( I was trying to use up what I had!) It all worked fine. Also, I was trying to quickly chop the nuts so I put them in the blender-- they appeared to be too finely chopped, but once the cookies were baked, they were great.
