The Monster Cookies… These were inspired by Ulle aka ‘The Wildcat’ when Helena and Jess were discussing what baked good she is. We decided something totally wild, sweet and monstrous was fitting for the Wild Cat. Gooey, indulgent and perfectly sugary these classic American cookies will satisfy any sweet tooth. Bonus tip: Careful not to over bake to maintain the gooey-ness, they will harden once cooled.
