I bake these for every holiday - using the appropriate holiday colored M & M's --
M & M Holiday Cookies
1 C. Crisco
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 pkg. of M & M Plain Chocolate Candies (appropriate holiday colors, of course!!)
Blend Crisco and both sugars together. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Stir in the remaining dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, & salt). Add 1 cup of M & M's to the mixture. (save the remaining M & M's for topping)
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet (I line mine with parchment paper). I top each cookie with 3 M & M's. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
I get about 3 dozen cookies with the way I scoop them. I have been making these cookies for years and years!! Of course, you don't have to make these just during the holidays -- you can use the regular colors of M & M's too!! (Our WalMart has containers of one color - I know I have seen red, white, green, and I know that there are more. You could do these cookies in your team colors, too!!)
Here is the dough in the mixing bowl -
Of course, the Easter colored M & M's --

I am trying to get Lucy in the Easter spirit. I thinking I am going to have to try harder! Maybe she's the Easter Grinch!!
