How to Make Texas Sized M&M Cookies
- Cream the butter and sugars. Add vanilla, eggs and M&Ms.
- In a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the egg and candy mixture. Mix well without over mixing (it makes cookies tough).
- Make balls about 2 "in diameter and place on an ungreased light aluminum cookie sheet (I use air cushioned). Flatten each ball with the palm of your hand, to about 3/8 of an inch thick. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes (depending on how hot your oven gets). Remove cookies when the outer edges of the cookies are barely brown. Allow to cool on the sheets for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks to cool completely. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen very large cookies; for more, either make another batch or make 'em smaller.
