M & M Cookies

Here is the recipe for the cookies I was making the other day, courtesy of Amy! It seems there is a group of people who like their M&M's mixed in and a group who like their M&M's on top - do it whichever way you like!

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. shortening
2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 eggs
4 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. salt

Cream together butter, shortening and sugars. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Stir in remaining dry ingredients. If you are mixing in the M&M's, go ahead and pour in a whole bag now.

Drop on ungreased cookie sheet, if you are doing M&M's on top - do it now! Bake at 375 for 9 minutes. Makes 7-8 dozen. Enjoy!

We have a tradition of making these on Christmas Eve with red & green m&m's mixed in. Yum!

Yum. Ok...I'm a mixer...but it's Christmas, so I'm color-coordinated :o)

I shared your post and recipe on my blog today as the final cookie in our Virtual Cookie Exchange. Thanks for sharing!

I mix chocolate chips in like I do with normal chocolate chip cookies and ALSO put M&Ms on top (see photo here: http://www.halfpinthouse.com/2009/12/december-photo-project-day-4.html )

Seriously? These cookies are sooo sooo yummy.
