This is DD's favorite cookie. They come out about the size of the lid on the Crisco can. Not cheap to make, but fun to do with the kids once or twice a year for something special Be sure to have a large dishpan or bowl to mix them up in.

Best cookies ever! You can cut the batch in half and make smaller cookies, but be prepared to freeze them, or eat them all(my choice). Very superb.

This is a recipe that my family has enjoyed for years! We add as many "extras" as we can - usually including (in addition to the M&M's & Chocolate Chips) butterscotch chips, pecans, and vanilla chips. I don't have a large dishpan, so I scrub out one side of my sink really well and use it.
