1 cup shortening - do not use butter*
1-1/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 bag of regular-sized Milk Chocolate M&M's (240g)

• Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
• In a large bowl whip the shortening and brown sugar.
• Add the eggs, and vanilla extract. Blend well.
• Place the flour, baking soda and the salt in a separate bowl.
• Mix well to ensure baking soda and salt are evenly distributed.
• Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture.
• Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.

• Roll out dough on a well floured surface.
• Cut the cookies with large biscuit cutter.
• Place the cookies on the prepared cookie sheet.
• Lightly press the M&M's into the dough.
• Bake at 350F for 13-14 minutes.
• Remove from the oven and let stand to settle for a few minutes.
• Move cookies on a cookie rack to cool.
Yields 32 large cookies

*For a buttery flavour use butter-flavoured shortening.

Use regular-sized M&M's in order to have a chocolate taste in the cookies. The mini M&M's are more coating than chocolate, and will not melt properly.
