M & M Fun Cookies
All purpose flour
Butter or margarine
Firmly packed brown sugar
M & M semi-sweet chocolate
Chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 F. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Cream together butter, sugars until light and fluffy; beat in the egg and vanilla.
Blend in flour mixture slowly. Stir in M&M's and nuts.
Drop heaping teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-11 minutes until browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; place on wire cooling racks.
**Note. I used 3/4 baking powder instead of the baking soda and the cookies came out very nicely.**
