Recipe: M&M Cookies
But, there is one cookie I have a weakness for (well, two, but I don’t know how to make an Oreo): M&M cookies. These are a Christmas staple at home. I make them for my oldest brother every year, because I know he’ll take my gift back if I don’t.
And while they are usually reserved for Christmas, I happened to have a stash of red M&Ms hanging around my apartment (don’t ask why, it’s a long story). So, I decided to make a batch for my co-workers on Valentine’s Day. I’m sweet like that.
I didn’t hear any complaints.
