    These were a staple in college. Never had a boyfriend who didn't like them (not like a male college student is a hard sell for homemade cookies!)

      If the cookies cook too flat, that means you need a little bit more flour. Here's how you tell: before adding the m&m's.......test dough with you should not stick to finger. Add a little more flour until the dough tests that way. The difference is usually in the variable size of eggs....which can change the liquid amount in dough a little.. Works for me every time.

      Also, I used half butter and half margarine. I changed the flour to 1/2 c. whole wheat, 1 and 3/4 c. unbleached flour....very fantastic and my family unknowingly got some fiber.

      I followed the recipe EXACTLY and the cookies did not turn out. They were very flat and flavorless.

      I am part of the "flat" cookie results. Good cookie, but flat, I used the correct margarine, followed the directions to a "t" and they were flatter than pancakes.
