Today is all about some yummy cookies. I made these at Christmas, but am dying to make them again soon!

I will admit that I found the recipe through Sarah! She made these and they looked amazing so I threw them into my Mom’s cookie rotation!

I worked HARD on these cookies! My mom does not have a kitchen aid!! lol! My arm was tired!!

I thought the base dough of these cookies was great! Not only is it great for M&Ms but also for chocolate or peanut butter chips. I think my next go around would be to add some chocolate chips and peanut butter chips in!

Enjoy!
