The Pioneer Woman Strikes Again

The Pioneer Woman hit my kitchen last night.  And also my waistline.  No matter, it’s worth every pound added to my body.

I was feeling sweet, so I checked out the “Desserts” section of  http://thepioneerwoman.com.  As I scrolled through all of the possible desserts I think I could be heard saying “Mmmm,” “Yum,” “OHHH!”   I think you get the picture, yes?  It could also be described as too-much-deliciousness-for-your-own-good.  Disclaimer:  If you’re seriously trying to lose weight, keep AWAY from the desserts section.  Actually, maybe you should avoid her “Cooking” section all together for a while.  But if you’re like me and this sounds familiar, “My jeans don’t fit!  I’m not eating for a year…did someone just say chocolate?” then Pioneer Woman away!

I decided to keep it simple last night, so I went to cookies.  My eyes came across the words, “Monster Cookies.”  Can I get a “yes, please!” from anyone?  You gonna likeeee these.  Ok here’s the link to the recipe:  http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/09/monster-cookies/  and let’s begin!

Really, these are glorified chocolate chip cookies.  I mean, they’ve got rice krispies, chocolate chips, oats, M & M’s and peanut butter chips in ’em!  How can you go wrong?  Oh, and if you’re a nut lover, the recipe calls for pecans.  But me no like nuts.  So my version is nut-less.

Yummy cookie dough (Pre-everything monstrous)

Rawrrr Cookie Monster

Such cute little monster cookies

Yum!!

I tasted 1…or 2.  Maybe even 2 and a half, but I had to.  I had to make absolutely sure that the Monster Cookies were delicious.  And they were.  Because I had 2 more today 🙂

One problem that I did face though, is my cookies almost always (unless my baking has been blessed that day) come out flat.  I want puffy cookies!  Any suggestions out there?  I’d be glad to hear them!
