M & M Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
about 2 cups M & M's (I used dark chocolate & just threw some in)
about 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
about 2/3 cup dried cherries (again did not measure, just threw them in)
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer 30 seconds. Add sugars, soda and salt. Beat until combined.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla till mixture is smooth. Using the mixer, gradually beat in flour.
Stir in M & M's, cherries, nuts.
Bake in 325 degree oven for about 15 - 16 minutes, or until golden. Cool a few minutes before removing from pan or they will break. Makes about 2 dozen large cookies.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
