M & M cookies

I think I found this recipe on Taste of Home bulletin board. I used a small cookie scoop to form the cookies. These turned out just like bakery cookies---soft and chewy. We loved these. They freeze well!

·        M & M Cookies

1 cup Crisco (vegetable shortening)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon water
2 eggs
2 cups + 4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups M and M plain candies


Blend Crisco and sugars. Beat in vanilla, water, and eggs. Sift remaining
dry ingredients together and add to the sugar and egg mixture. Mix well.
Stir in M and Ms. Drop from teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. For additional color,
press extra M and Ms into cookies before baking. Makes 6 dozen 2 1/2 inch
cookies
