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 finger......it 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.

I had to add extra flour just so they wouldn't come out completely flat and they were still pretty flat when I finished. I don't know where it all went so wrong with this recipe.

I tried to make these and they did not turn out at all. I even made sure I purchased the correct type of margarine. I ended up throwing out a whole batch and using my regular chocolate chip recipe instead. I feel so bad posting this, but I the reason I chose this recipe was from the other posts. I bake cookies every week for my office and wanted to try someting with the Bears and Colts colors!

This recipe was horrible. The cookies "melted" as they were baking.

I only use real butter, that being said, I did add a bit more flour which helped them firm up & not spread out so much. They were really good, nice soft center & crispy on the outside. Baking time was right on, be sure to grease the pan. Oh, probably only used half the M&Ms & that was perfect. Did one batch regular & one Reese's Pieces peppermint patty (blue& white), thanks for sharing.

My 4 children love these! I only bake with butter, so that is my only alteration. Due to a severe egg allergy I am unable to eat these, but they smell devine. Dough can be frozen (so long as m&m's aren't added). I agree a little more flour is needed.

An old time favorite and classic cookie recipe. I like to use different colored candies to coordinate with themes...... football colors, school colors...etc.
