Today is cookie Friday at the smith house. I make cookies while the big boys are at school with my two little helpers. Then we make some plates to take to people we didn't get visiting or home taught or who whine if we don't and the boys get to come home to cookies and milk. I thought I would share the recipe each Friday.
Holiday M&M Cookies
1/3 c. Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 c. Flour
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 c. Butter
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. Brown Sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. Semi-Sweet chocolate chips
2 c. mint chips or white chips or peanut butter chips
2 c. milk chocolate chips
1 bag holiday colored M&M's
In large bowl cream butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients; add chips and M&M's mix in. Bake 350 for 12 min. do not over bake.
I make these for each holiday Christmas we use mint chips and red and green M&M's, Valentines, white chips and red, pink and white M&M's, St Patrick's day, mint chips and green M&M's and Easter or spring, pastel m&m's and mint chips, Forth of July, white chips and red white and blue m&m's , Autumn, halloween m&ms and peanut butter chips.
One year I bought a lot of Christmas M&M's after the holidays for a dollar a bag. I had great plans to separate them into red and green and use them for Valentines and St Patrick's days unfortunately they were gone before New Years. Oh well!
I am planning to take my camera to Joshua's game tomorrow morning so I can add some football pictures next week.
I made it to the gym three days in a row this week good thing because all I ate today was cookies.
