I haven't had M&M cookies in years but these brought back those familiar memories of soft luscious buttery cookies loaded with M&M's. It was interesting to see the cookies with aqua M&M's (my favorite is purple). I set the oven temperature for 375 degree F. and baked the cookies for about 8 minutes (soft not crunchy). Thanks for bringing back memories......

You've done it again Inez - another 5 star winner. A great, easy recipe, simple ingredients, and in no time cookies that everyone loved, even a person that doesn't like M&M's. They were gone in a flash by the "cookie monsters". Thanks for posting.

My mom and my boyfriend loved these cookies. They were good but I think I was looking for a little something less brown sugar-y and buttery. I was thinking of a sugar-type lighter colored, moister cookie with m&m's. A good recipe but not what I was looking for.
