Melissa's Cuisine: MandM Cookies

MandM Cookies

I'm blessed to have a job where I have Fridays off.  As a result, I typically spend my Fridays in the kitchen!  I love it :)  I recently asked Mike if there was anything he would like me to bake for him.  Typically he says no, but on this day he requested his favorite--M&M cookies.  I, of course, turned to my go-to recipe for chocolate chips and just subbed out the chocolate chips for M&M candies.  These are the cookies that I grew up eating.  I remember coming home from school to my mom pulling a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies out of the oven.  It was the perfect after-school-snack.  One that kids and adults alike can enjoy.  I'm sure you'll love these cookies as much as Mike and I do!
