Auctionable Cookies. Month 10.

The recipe calls for M&Ms (and I had a ton from a couponing deal a few months ago), but it should work just as well with chocolate chips. I made 3 batches of these cookies within 2 weeks. And other than giving to my auction recipient,

I didn’t share. At. all.

Original Recipe Yield 5 – 6 dozen

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
  1. In a large bowl, mix sugar, eggs, shortening, and vanilla thoroughly. Add flour, salt, and baking soda to creamed mixture. Blend well. Add 3/4 cup of M&M candies.
  2. Drop dough by teaspoonful onto cookie sheet. Slightly push a few candies on top of each dough ball with remaining candies.
