Holiday M&M Cookies

holiday cookies with Zac, the blue-eyed boy, being very patient in the background...

Is it too early to get festive? As I type this, I'm running back and forth from kitchen to computer in 10-minute intervals; answering the demanding call of my oven's timer. One batch was a casualty - the sad victim of someone's husband 'helping' by turning the timer off. Yet, he leaves the cookies inside unbeknownst to the baker. Who does this sort of thing?!? I choose to overcome and forge ahead. Hope you all enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness of this traditional favourite in the Green household.

Holiday M&M Cookies

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white sugar

Cream together then add:

3 beaten eggs
4 1/2 cups Quaker Minute Oats
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons soda
2 bags Christmas Coloured M&Ms (220 gram bag)

Drop on cookie sheet then bake at 350 for ten minutes. Keep husband away from kitchen.
