M&M cookies are just basic chocolate chip cookies with M&Ms. They are fun and colorful!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 mini m&ms. (I find those much easier in cookies)
Preheat oven to 375
Mix shortening and butter till smooth. Add sugars, eggs and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture. Blend well.
Fold in m&ms.
Using a medium cookie scoop, drop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. As always oven temps vary, so please check cookies when they have a few minutes left to make sure they are doing well.
Remove from oven and let sit on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes, remove to wire rack to cool.
Makes 4 dozen exactly with medium scoop!
