Wedding Cookies

I tend to think that cookies are a good thing to bring to most occasions.  When planning our wedding, I had a grand plan of having a cookie table that people could contribute to and then take home at the end of the night.  However I was sad to find out once we picked our venue that due to food safety laws no homemade food could be served there.

After some brainstorming - we came up with the idea of cookies in a jar.  I figured this was even better than taking away already made cookies - as our guests could take them home, and have easy delicious cookies whenever they wanted.  I set out to find a recipe with ingredients that just fit inside a quart jar, had a variety of colors, and were tasty - and I lucked out to stumble upon this monster cookie recipe.

Not only are these cookies simple to make, but they are delicious!  They are sort of a like a chocolate chip, M&M and oatmeal cookie, all mixed in together into one chewy cookie.  And they make great gifts either in a jar, or in cookie form :).

So I recommend you resist finishing them off straight from the oven, the wait will be worth it.
