This was a great recipe. I made one change, i used butter instead of shortening. They turned out fine! only "bad" thing i have to say is that the cookies only took 8.5 minutes. No where near the 10-14 they suggest! but everyone knows with cookies you have to watch the first batch to see how long it will take. Very good recipe indeed!
I tried making them in lump and instead of it evening out it stay like that . oh well the cookies where OK just lumpy.
This is my favorite M&M cookie recipe. The only change I make is to use butter instead of shortening. They come out perfectly chewy and stay that way.
I used half shortening, half salted butter. I made no other changes. I actually baked mine at 350* for eleven minutes--the reason for the longer cooking time was because I really packed my small cookie scoop to make bigger sized cookies which meant they needed a touch longer bake time. They turned out soft, chewy and were loved by my husband and two kids. Next time, I will try this with Reese's pieces and maybe half peanut butter in place of some of the shortening.
As most chocolate cookies are, this is a slight variation of “Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies.” I like the use of shortening rather than all butter in this recipe for the sturdiness it imparts, but wanting the best of both worlds, I used half of each. Going into this I knew this would be a moister, softer cookie, just by virtue of the fact that there is a higher ratio of brown sugar to white sugar. Because I like my cookies crunchier, I knew this would not be MY favorite, but I know this texture appeals to most – and that’s what it delivered. These are indeed soft and tender, but chewy at the same time. I had mini M & M’s in the pantry, so I correspondingly made the cookies smaller too. As I do with all my cookies containing butter, I chilled the dough for about an hour before I baked them. These cheery two-bite cuties will be well-liked at Hubs’ meeting tomorrow morning.
I absolutley love these cookies. They stay nice and soft, and chewy. Very, very excellent recipe. They go together quick, too!
This is a great recipe!! It is very similar to my chocolate chip cookie recipe so, I decided to tweek it a bit. Instead of the 1/2 cup of sugar, I used 1/4 cup of sugar and then added a 3.4 oz. box of instant vanilla pudding. This recipe is a keeper!!
At Christmas, I use the red and green M&Ms and they are always a hit.
