These are quintessential bake sale cookies. This recipe will give you those beautiful 4-inch cookies you see at the bakery section of your grocery store. They are great for holidays because you can purchase the special holiday colored M&Ms. The recipe only makes 18 cookies, but I have doubled and even tripled it with success. If you decide to make multiple batches at one time then you will need to break out the big Kitchenaid mixer!!
