M & M's Cookies

M & M's Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon water
1 egg
1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup M & M's plain chocolate candies***
Nuts and raisins, optional

Blend in shortening and sugar; beat in vanilla, water and egg. Sift remaining dry ingredients together; add to sugar and egg mixture, mixing well. Stir in candies and if desired nuts or raisins. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet; bake at 375 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. For additional color, press extra candies into cookies before baking. Some candies will crack.

***I recently found mini M & M's in the bulk food section at my local grocery store.
