The Best M&M Cookies

I guess the title says it all . . .

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding

3/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups mini or regular M & Ms

1  Preheat oven to 350.

2  Beat butter and sugar until well combined.  Add egg, vanilla and milk and mix until smooth.

3  Mix in pudding mix, baking soda and salt then add flour, beating until just combined.

4  Stir in M & Ms.

5  Scoop dough onto greased or lined cookie sheets.  Bake 9 – 11 minutes or until edges begin to turn gold.

6  Let sit on sheets for about 3 – 4 minutes before removing.

I doubled the recipe and it made about 5 dozen.  The dough is really stiff so you can add more milk to make it a little more workable.  I had to press the tops down a bit before baking to get them into a better shape.
