When did making cookies get so expensive. This is a huge recipe like a triple batch but really they cost a mint. Recipe says it makes 12 dozen. I think I got only about 10 dozen good size cookies out of it. I used a pound of butter 2 bags 12oz semi sweet chocolate chips 1 bag 11 oz milk chocolate pieces (or chopped up hershey bar) I have $8 dollar in to the recipe already. 5 cups oats 4 cups flour vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, salt, 4 eggs, 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups regular sugar I'll bet it was at least $15 to make these cookies. They are soooo good but geeesh.
