Tasty cookies. A tip for those with flat cookies: refrigerate your dough until thoroughly cold prior to baking. If your dough is room temperature (and it probably is since there are few cold ingredients), the cookies will start to spread out even before they begin to cook. Cold dough prevents this, leaving you with thicker, more "normal" looking cookies.

These were just ok. My family did not like them, and I made them for a Boy Scout function and it did not seem as though they went over as well as I wished that they would have. No one asked me for the recipe or anything. This is something that I probably would not make again. They were colorful though!! I will give you that, along with 3 stars!!!

This is one of the best homemade cookie recipies I have ever tried! They turned out perfectly and were a big hit at my house. I used butter Crisco instead of regular shortening.

I made these cookies for my friends at school, and everyone loved them! So even told me they were the best cookies they have had in a LONG time! They were great!

These were sooo good, my hubby couldn't stop eating them. I made a mistake, and added all the M&M's at once, but they still came out fine. I used the green & red M&M's for Christmas.

These cookies are easy and yummy. A nice alternative to plain old chocolate chip cookies and always a hit with children!
