    I made these again today, and I figured out that if you put the extra M&M's on top right after they come out of the oven, the shells of the candies on the top don't break or crack. Also, if you roll them into balls when you put them on the cookie sheets, they look bakery-perfect. I used sil-pat sheets instead of parchment paper, and it's now a five-star recipe, in my opinion! I brought them to a school event, and they were the first thing that was all gone!

    Wow, I could get into serious trouble with these (diet-wise). Fabulous cookies! I reduced the butter by 1/4 cup, and increased the flour by 1/4 cup. The cookies are chewy with crisped edges, perfectly sweet and a hit with everyone in the family.

    Love this recipe and so does everyone who eats them. They are a huge hit. I add about a 1/2 cup extra flour so that they are soft and kind of doughy. I never liked m&m cookies until now. Thanks for sharing!
