IF: Remedy

The ultimate remedy for any ailment.

It’s Friday again!  That means another concept for Illustration Friday!  I’m sad to say, however, I missed my deadline for the Illustration Friday Website… apparently Friday noon is not when everything is due.  From here on out, I’ll get it posted Thursday night. Regardless, I will share my concept for my Thotful followers!  Here is a black and white comp of my concept for this week’s Illustration Friday.  The word was: ‘Remedy’. My concept for the ultimate Remedy: Monster Cookies.  Cookies that are the solution to any problem from a bruise to a broken heart.  You see my monster’s enthusiasm for the heart-stopping goodness of the M & M’s, the peanuty-buttery, oaty, chocolatey, deliciousness before him.  The best way for this delicious remedy to be served up is right out of Grandma’s oven. My Grandma Penrod always made these incredible treats for the grandkids when we’d come to visit.

If you are in need of a Monster Cookie Remedy this weekend, here’s my Grandma’s Penrod’s original recipe for you to enjoy!:

Monster Cookies (Makes a monster quantity of 4 dozen.)

6  eggs                                                            2 cups white sugar (or 1 1/2 cups)
1 pound Brown sugar                                      1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon corn syrup                                  4 teaspoons soda
1cup margarine                                               1 1/2 pound crunchy Peanut butter
9 cups oatmeal                                                1/2 pound chocolate chips
1/2 pound M & M’s

Mix in order given, do not over bake. There is no flour used in this recipe.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12 min. I usually bake it about 10 min. it makes a softer cookie.

Stay tuned for next week’s topic!
