Easy color cookie recipe with m&m’s!

Happiest new cookie idea in years!

Only Crisco and m&m’s Plain Chocolate Candies offer you this delicious new cookie. Kids really go for crisp, fun-to-eat “Color Cookies.”

1/2 cup Crisco
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon water
1 egg
1 cup + 2 tablespoons sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup M&M’s Plain Chocolate Candies

Blend Crisco and sugars. Beat in vanilla, water and egg. Sift remaining dry ingredients together and add to the sugar and egg mixture. Mix well. Stir in M&M’s Plain Chocolate Candies. Drop from teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen 2 1/2 in cookies.

For additional color, press extra M&M’s Plain Chocolate Candies into cookies before baking. Some candies crack slightly in baking, adding texture and interest to the cookies. See “Cookie Baking Helps and Hints” on the special Crisco label.
