Big Cookie Dreamin'

My Big Anzac Cookie
March is here, snow is melting, forecasting more this week! Yikes, I need cookies to calm down. My confession for today: I can't help myself, big cookies are my dream. Some like having 2 or 3 little cookies to nibble on. Dainty, tasty, tea time sweets. Not me. I want a huge, honkin' 5 inch cookie that's all mine, no sharing. I have several recipes that I make but perhaps my favorites are the Anzac, the Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Chip with Peanut Butter Cups chopped in and the Sugar Cookie with hard icing. Oh, and maybe the Oatmeal Raisin.
