We decided to make M & M Party cookies even though traditionally we like to make gingerbread together. (we will save that for another visit). These are a pretty standard cookie and I was happy to use up some of the candy I still have hanging around the house after the holidays.
The finished product...
M & M Party Cookies
1 cup shortening
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups M & M's (we added some chocolate chips, also)
Cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients.
Stir in add-ins. Bake at 350F,10 minutes or until lightly browned.
(I like soft cookies so I tend to underbake) Enjoy!
