today i am going to share with you one of my very fav cookies!
this was always the one i would ask for growing up, and now i am trying to lovingly force it to be at least one of my kids favorites too:)
the official name of this recipe is called "easy party cookies"
but, really it is an m&m cookie recipe.
Easy Party Cookies
1 cup shortening *
1/2 cup granulated sugar*
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar*
2 tsp. vanilla extract*
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 cups m&m candies ( i like the dark choc ones)
mix together ingredients with the * beside it first.
combine dry ingredients and add to dough.
most importantly: add 1 cup of m&m candies to dough and save the other 1/2 cup.
spoon out on cookie sheet and then use remaining m&ms to decorate the top of the cookies!
bake at 375 for 12 mins or so.
you are most welcome:)
and if you are very fortunate, you will have some help:
some days there is nothing sweeter than a whole bunch of flour on a black kitchen floor!
