I love chocolate chip cookies and to make them better than ever before we added some M&M's to our cookie dough batter before baking. These cookies are incredible because they are soft and chewy...loaded with chocolate flavor! They are sweet but not overly so!
You can freeze the dough (unbaked) for up to 30 days or freeze the fully baked cookies for up to 3 months and then thaw when you need them. These cookies are the #1 requested at area bake sales when I participate. Everyone loves this cookie recipe!!!
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream or buttermilk
1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups of M & M chocolate coated candies
Mix all ingredients together in the order that they are given in the recipe. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until done. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool. Once done, store them in an airtight container.
