Good. I used butter flavored crisco and a whole 12 oz bag of m&ms. I got more like 36 cookies using a cookie scoop.

My kids really enjoyed these! I used 1/2 butter flavored crisco and 1/2 margarine. They went togehter quickly as promised too! Another keeper for sure, I don't think will last long enough to make it on any cookie platters however...
