M & M Cookies

I had a bag of Christmas M & M’s and wanted to make cookies so I googled “M & M cookie recipe” and found this one on http://www.squidoo.com which was titled “The Best Ever M & M Cookie Recipe”.  These are going in a care package for my friend Lacee who is on a mission in Virginia.

1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

12 oz package M & M’s

3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.

3  Beat in egg and vanilla.

4  In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.

5  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix.

6  Stir in M & M’s and nuts.

7  Using a teaspoon, drop cookies of about 1 heaping teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 2″ apart.

8  Bake 10 – 13 minutes.

9  Cool on wire racks.

The recipe said it yielded about 50 cookies.  I used my Pampered Chef medium cookie scoop (so larger than the teaspoon they were using) and got about 3 dozen (just 2 shy of 3 dozen).
