M & M's Party Cookies

I put the M & M's on after I drop the dough on the cookie sheet. This recipe Grandma Jan's and I remember these from my childhood. We had to make them every Christmas.

1 cup shortening (or 1/2 cup shortening & 1/2 cup butter)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups M & M's

Blend shortening & sugars. Beat in vanilla & eggs. Sift dry ingredients together, add to sugar & eggs mixture. Mix well stir in M & M's. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 375 10 -12 minutes.

I have been wanting a recipe for this cookie forever; this is just how they were made when I was a kid! I love that they don't have peanut butter, too.

Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday!
