Our daughter took these to school as a birthday treat. These cookies have the chewiness of a chocolate chip cookie and the fun colors of M&Ms.
Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 30-40 cookies
Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Stir in dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Add M&Ms. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. For large cookies, use ice cream scoop for measure and bake at 300 degrees F for 22 minutes.
Source: There was a note on this recipe that said it is a Mrs. Fields' blue ribbon recipe, so I guess the credit would go to her. :)

It's been a while since I made cookies. I got hooked on this St. Patrick concept realizing that it's fun to make crafts and recipes with rainbow colors. I had fun creating this snack with my kid during the weekend.
Mix first 5 ingredients until well mixed, add remaining ingredients. Mix until well blended, drop by tsp onto cookie sheet bake at 350 degrees f for 10-12 minutes.

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.
Here is another web site with holiday baking ideas...
MERRY CHERRY BARS
1 c. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. coarsely chopped red
1/3 c. coarsely chopped green
1 c. sifted confectioners
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.
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
