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!


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.
