M&M Cookies

I normally don’t make cookies with M&M’s in them…to be honest, I would rather eat M&M’s than use them in cookies. I would also rather eat a chocolate chip cookie. However, these cookies find themselves in numerous bakeries because people love them. I think these cookies bring out the inner child in all of us. There is something about those five colorful M&M’s sitting on top that suggests,perhaps for just a moment, we can lose ourselves in a very colorful and very happy cookie.

M&M Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup shortening

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, soda and salt together and set aside. Combine shortening, sugars and vanilla and beat. Mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 cups M&M’s. Roll into balls. Press 4 to 5 M&M’s into tops of cookies. Bake 10 minutes.
