Who can resist a gigantic cookie chock-full of goodies like chocolate chips, M&M's and peanut butter? If your appetite isn't quite monster-size, make them by heaping tablespoonfuls. —Judy Fredenberg, Missoula, Montana
Paired with fresh fruit, these cookies are perfect for an energizing breakfast when you're on the go. Although they're called breakfast cookies, they're delicious any time of the day. —Pam Crockett, Huntsville, Utah
These chewy crowd-pleasers from Connie Craig of Lakewood, Washington feature all sorts of goodies, including chocolate chips, raisins, coconut and candy-coated baking bits. For a more colorful look, press the baking bits on top of the bars instead of stirring them into the cereal mixture.
Set out a basket of these pleasing "lollipops" at your next bazaar or family event and watch them disappear! You can easily create characters by icing the cookies with store-bought frosting like the CT home economists did here or serve them plain just as Jan Cassidy of El Reno, Oklahoma often does. "Our children love eating cookies either way," Jan details. "What I enjoy is the fact that serving the sweets on sticks like this keeps messy hands to a minimum."—Jan Cassidy, El Reno, Oklahoma
These colossal cookies taste best when golden around the edges and moist and chewy in the center. With a glass of milk, they're polished off in no time by my grandchildren.
-Irene McDade, Cumberland, Rhode Island
You'll discover why the treat is so popular in San Francisco. It's snack heaven...ice cream, delicious oatmeal cookies and a touch of chocolate. Swap out the vanilla for your favorite flavor, such as chocolate, caramel or cherry. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
