Amish Friendship Bread Monster Cookies

Amish Friendship Bread is one of those go to comfort foods that we all need to have in our recipe box. Over the years we have taken the basic Amish Friendship Bread Starter (click the link to get the starter recipe) and created a lot of fun bread, cookie and other recipe variations. One of our family favorites ways to use the starter is with cookies. It is amazing how yummy these cookies turn out. These are great to use with your leftover Halloween candy, too!
