M&M cookies . . . what’s not to love?
I’ve always loved M&M cookies. When my grandma would take us shopping as kids we’d go the the candy counter/bakery at the department store ZCMI and I would get an M&M cookie.
I’m sure I love M&M cookies too because I love M&M’s. I can’t eat them without thinking about my grandma. She always had them at her house for us. The first thing we would do when we walked in her back door was go to the kitchen cupboard to get our M&M’s. If the there weren’t any in the cupboard then we would head down to her food storage room and always find some. She never let us down. My grandma truly rocked!!
If you were to ask me, these M&M cookies are perfect. They are exactly how an M&M cookie should be; crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside and chock full of M&M’s.
It’s hard to eat just one. I love, love, love these cookies!
