M&M Cookies from The Home Cooked Gourmet

5 years ago

I love these cookies and have been making them forever. When I was little, my mom always made them and let me help and now I enjoy making these cookies for my own kids. It is so easy to coordinate them to whatever holiday is around the corner with the various holiday-colored M&Ms. For more recipes, visit: http://homecookedgourmet.blogspot.com/
