Oh goodness this M&M Cookie Recipe has got to be one of my favorites. I will admit that my husbands ex-wife use to send these yummy candy cookies over for us at the holidays and I became totally addicted. I asked her for the recipe and have made them every year since. I think about 15 years now, ha ha. Having cookies all made up during the holidays is a tradition of ours. I like making a huge variety and having them available to snack on. This recipe is pretty quick and simple but quite tasty.
