Ultimate M & M Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

This is from an M&M's recipe booklet I picked up somewhere. This does not use peanut butter like a lot of other recipes on this site with M&M's. I hope you like them.

Yummy cookie recipe. We made these for our 2010 cookie trays for the holidays and everyone loved them. We used red and green m&m's and they looked so festive. These cookied were soft and full of flavor. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, its definately a recipe I will pull out all year long.
