2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of shortening, the white kind like Crisco
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (I used light brown)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 bag of Mini M&M’s (12 ounce bag)
When your favorite Cookie Monster comes for a visit, one quickly needs to come up with a new cookie recipe. I got two thumbs up on this recipe and I was told that it was his favorite (until the next cookie comes out the oven).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
Cream together shortening and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs and blend well. Slowly vombine flour mixture a little at a time. Stir in M&M’s. Drop by tablespoons (I used a small scoop) onto an greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. Leave on cookie sheet for 1 minute, remove and remain cooling on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container. These cookies will melt in your mouth, not in your hand. Enjoy!
