One of our favorite's is M&M Cookies. I use this recipe for many holidays, choosing the appropriate color M&M's to match the holiday. Thanks to Julie, a past co-worker for this recipe.
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup shortening
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 cups flour
2 cups M&M's ( reserve 1/2 cup)
Mix all ingredients. Add M&M's last. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Top each cookie with M&M. Bake at 350 degrees for 11 minutes. Makes 8 dozen.
