Print Friendly

1 c. shortening

1 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. granulated sugar

2 t. vanilla

2 eggs

2 1/4 c. flour

1 t. baking soda

1 t. salt

1 1/2 c. M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In electric mixer, beat together shortening and sugars.  Add vanilla and eggs, beat till combined.  In a separate bowl mix together flour, soda and salt.  Add flour mixture to the sugar egg mixture and mix till combined.

With a medium size scoop, place cookie dough 2 in. apart on baking sheet, only 9 per sheet (they spread out).  On each cookie place 7 – 9 m&m’s.  Press them in slightly so they don’t fall off and as the cookie bakes they spread out perfectly.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on rack.
