In the Kitchen: Red's Ultimate M&M Cookies

I made these tasty cookies a couple weeks ago for the First of July. And then again shortly after since Alden complained that he didn't get any. Totally tasty!!

July 9 - Cookies
1 cup margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 package M&M chocolate mini bits

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butters and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a large bowl, combine flour, soda and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in M&M bits. Drop by heaping teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft. Do not over bake (I baked mine 8 minutes!) Cool one minute on the cookie sheet, cool completely on wire racks.
Enjoy!

hmmm who would eat 4 dozen cookies?? it's a mystery. ok As soon as I saw this post I thought it was for me, thanks. whenever I get around to making them I really really hope they are as good as yours. but if not I might be asking for some baking next time I come your way
