DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, mix together sugars, shortening, margarine, vanilla and eggs with an electric mixer.
  • In a seperate bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda.
  • Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl a cup at a time until it is mixed together completely.
  • Open bag of M&M baking bits and pour out 1/3 cup to reserve for later. Add the rest of the chips and fold into batter.
  • Chill cookie dough for 1 hour.
  • Later, preheat oven to 350 degrees. On ungreased cookie sheets, or using parchment paper on cookie sheets, drop dough by spoonfuls with room for spreading.
  • Take 2 or 3 of the reserve M&M's and place on top of each cookie. This way, some clearly show after the cookie bakes.
  • Bake in 350 oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.
  • Remove cookies from sheet and place on cooling rack.
