Monster Cookies

Do you have a Wonder Cup? If you don’t, it just so happens to be the greatest measuring implement ever invented! A Wonder Cup is a 2 piece measuring cup for measuring all things sticky, ooey and gooey…such as peanut butter. Have you ever tried to get all the peanut butter out of a basic measuring cup? It’s like getting in a fight you don’t want to be a part of. But this nifty gadget has a clear, marked measuring top part and a solid “plunger” type bottom part.

You simply adjust the bottom to the correct measurement, fill the top and then push them back together while emptying the contents in your mixing bowl. Pure genius! I bet I’ve had this little gizmo for 20 years….love, love, love it! While you don’t need it to make these cookies, it definitely makes the job a little easier. Save the fight for claiming a cookie!

Note: This flour-less cookie is somewhat dense and chewy with a crunchy exterior. They go well with a cold glass of milk:)
