This is another cookie recipe that came from hubby's family. I have never been a big fan of M&M cookies, but these I will make an exception for! LOL Like his peanut butter cookies, when he makes these for friends or church events, they are quick to disappear. Whenever there was a food event at church, all people wanted to know was if he baked and which ones were his, then the race was on to see if you could get one before they disappeared. LOL Since I've been posting Christmas cookie recipes, I thought these would be a fun addition if the red and green M&M's were used. Enjoy!
