My grandma made these M&Ms cookies, and the tradition is alive and well to this day. Make a batch for your holiday cookie tray this year!

You'll need:

  • 3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 1/3 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup M&Ms
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Here's how to make them:

  1. Cream together the sugar and shortening until fluffy. 
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. Combine the flour, soda and salt. Add to the wet ingredients. 
  4. Stir in the M&Ms.
