M&M Cookies

Makes: 4 dozen

Description: Our grandkids love making M&M cookies - mixing in M&Ms is a lot more fun for them than mixing in chocolate chips. These go very fast at our house. If you don't have M&Ms, 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips work just as well.

1/4 cup  light brown sugar
1/2 cup  granulated sugar
1/2 cup  softened butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup  vegetable shortening
1 1/2 tsp.  vanilla
1  egg, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cups  all purpose flour
1 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp  salt
10 ozs  M&Ms

Instructions: Preheat your oven to 375.

Blend brown sugar, granulated sugar, shortening, vanilla and the egg in a large bowl or stand mixer.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add to the sugar/butter mixture, and stir to incorporate until blended. Stir in the M&Ms until well mixed.

Place approximately a teaspoonful at a time onto cookie sheets, leaving about 2 inches between the dough balls.

Cook 10-12 minutes at 375, remove from oven, and cool.
