Monster Cookies

Scripture to Live By:
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

Happy Independence Day!

Recipe Post:
I worked at a Christian Camp for many years and one of the favorite cookies for campers as well as staff was the Monster Cookies.  Each recipe batch would make 100 cookies.  The cookies were named Monster Cookies because the size of the cookies.  Each cookie measured 4-5 inches in diameter.  My family will be here for the holidays and so I made a batch for them to enjoy.  There will be 16 of us so I know we will need a batch of this size.  The Monster Cookie is a hit will all of us.

If you would like to try our monster cookie recipe the following ingredients is what you will need.

I am so glad a large part of our family is here. We are enjoying being together and are so thankful for this time we can share in each others lives, as we celebrate our nation's Independence Day.  We so enjoy going to the parade together and having a cook out, with all the great food, enjoying the river with all the boating, swimming, canoing, tubing and kyaking.  What fun!

These Monster Cookies will be enjoyed by all, through out this day of celebration.  I must say they look yummy.  I am so thankful I can share them with my dear family members.  



Hope each of you enjoy this special day as we celebrate our Independence as a nation.  May God continue to bless this nation and may we as a nation turn our hearts to the God who gave us this freedom.
Blessings to each of you,
