Ingredients

1 1/2
cups packed brown sugar
1
cup granulated sugar
1
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
cup shortening
2
teaspoons vanilla
2
eggs
3 3/4
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons baking soda
1
teaspoon salt
2
cups M&M's™ chocolate candies

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat sugars, butter, shortening, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until well blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in candies.
  • 2 Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls about 3 inches apart onto ungreased large cookie sheet.

Expert Tips

Unbaked cookie dough can be frozen in an airtight container up to 9 months. Before baking, thaw frozen dough in the fridge at least 8 hours.

A trick for making drop cookies the same size and shape: Use a spring-handled cookie or ice-cream scoop. A #16 scoop holds 1/4 cup dough.
