M&M Cookies

Newer Older

My brother graduated with his BA this weekend and a party was thrown in his honor. My contribution was a huge batch of his favorite cookie. I doubled this recipe and it yielded at least five dozen 3" cookies. They were wonderful and not a single one was left, much to his disappointment! The recipe is below.

Preheat oven to 375.

1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. butter flavored shortening (Crisco)
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 14oz bag M&Ms

In large bowl, cream together sugars, eggs, shortening, and vanilla. In another bowl stir well the dry ingredients. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Once thoroughly combined, add M&Ms (use more or less to your liking). Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased foil or parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Leave on cookie sheet for two minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool. Store in airtight container if not devoured within a few minutes!

    OK, call me dumb.
    but it still remains a mystery to me how come the chocolate inside doesn't melt while they are baking..

    I guess its just one of lifes great unsolved mysteries.

    or sorcery!!!
