      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.

      I agree with Chef#1375887...I can't stop eating these delicious cookies. I made these for a homeschool project for my pre-K sweetie and only needed one cookie for the project and now I have to eat the rest! YIKES! Great recipe and will surely use again! Thanks for sharing Hurley! :D
