A friend of mine shared this recipe many years ago. She used chocolate chips,but I have always substituted M&M's. My family loves them, and I can tell you right up front, they aren't good for you ;-)
Holiday Party Cookies -
Cast of Characters
1 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup sugar
Blend together, then add
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon Wheat Germ (optional)
1 Tablespoon Flax seeds (optional)
Blend everything together and add 1 1/2 cups M&M's or Chocolate Chips
Drop by teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
Aren't they pretty :-) I do place M&M's on the top instead of mixing them in the batter. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. They tend to disappear pretty quickly.
