Cookie Share...

Every year at Christmas time, my Mom would bake these yummy M&M cookies.  My sister and I looked forward to them every year.  They are so good, and the kids will love making these with you.  This recipe has to be from the 80's.  I actually have the original copy my Mom clipped from a magazine.  It's funny, the things we treasure.  Enjoy!

M&M Super Cookies

1  15oz. package M&M plain candies ( I use the red & green holiday mix)
1 cup margarine
3/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup chopped nuts if desired

Coarsely chop 1 1/2 cups candies; reserve remaining for decoration.  Beat together margarine and sugars until light and fluffy; blend in eggs and vanilla.  In separate bowl combine flour and baking soda and salt. Add flour mix to creamed mix. Beat well. Stir in chopped candies. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets.Flatten slightly with back of spoon. Bake at 350~ for 9-11 minutes.  Remove from oven; immediately press 3 reserved candies into top of each cookie.  

Makes about 5 dozen.
