M&M Cookies!

I don't have much to say about this recipe, but that it is fun and delicious! I got this recipe from Jordan's mom from a Company's Coming cookbook, and it is definitely a keeper. These cookies are nice and soft, but unfortunately this means that they fall apart easily. Still delicious. Also, if you don't have enough m&ms (or are too cheap to buy the right amount) then just replace with chocolate chips.

PS. I once made this recipe once with Reese's Pieces, and they were awesome!

v  1 cup butter or margarine, softened
v  1 cup brown sugar, packed
v  ½ cup granulated sugar
v  2 eggs
v  2 tsp vanilla
v  2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
v  1 tsp baking soda
v  1 tsp salt
v  1 ½ cups M&Ms
Makes 4 dozen
Cream butter and both sugars together. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and half the M&Ms. Mix well. Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Press remaining M&Ms on top of cookies. Bake at 375ºF  for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
