“I was given this recipe 20 years ago by my then boyfriend's soon to be step mom and its still my favorite for "chocolate chip" cookies. I substituted the Semi Sweet Mini M&Ms (which make the best cookies) for the chocolate chips it originally called for, but you can use chocolate chips, regular M&Ms, the Milk Chocolate Mini M&Ms or whatever you like. Play with the spices too.”
3-4 dozen cookies
