I never rate anything but these are delicious! I let the dough refrigerate for two hours and it rolled out perfectly! Thanks so much for the recipe!
Help! I can't stop eating these cookies! I only use RecipeZaar (always have) and searched high and low for a s.c. recipe to add M&Ms to (like the ones you buy at the bakery). These are soooo good! The only alteration I made was I only had 2 sticks/cups of butter so I did 1/4 cup of smartblend margarine. Delicious, and easy ingredients you always have on hand.
These cookies are absolutely amazing! I also like to add about a teaspoon and a half of maple flavoring in addition to what's here, and no one can get enough!
