M&M Christmas Cookie Recipe

I am looking for a recipe which was on the back of a Christmas bag of M&M's several years ago. It used the green and red M&Ms and also candied cherries. I seem to remember using almond extract too. Anyone have this recipe?

Googled the M&M's website. They have Classic Cookies, Drop Cookies & Specialty Cookies.

From cookbooks.com:

MERRY CHERRY BARS

1 c. butter

1 c. granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp. almond extract

2 c. flour

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 c. coarsely chopped red

candied cherries

1/3 c. coarsely chopped green

M&M's

1 c. sifted confectioners

sugar

5 tsp. warm water

Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy;

blend in egg and almond extract. Add combined flour and salt;

mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup cherries. Spread dough into greased

15 1/2 x 10 x 1/2-inch jelly roll pan. Sprinkle with remaining

1/4 cup cherries and candies; press in lightly. Bake at 300 degrees

for 30 to 35 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.

Cool thoroughly. Combine confectioners sugar and water, mixing

Note: One 16 ounce package of M&M's plain candies

yields about 1/2 cup green M&M's.

Regarding the recipe I just posted, I notice some variations use 1/2 cup red & green M&Ms instead of 1/3 cup of green ones.

M&M's has a web page called "Bright ideas" I bet you can find the recipe there. Teressa
