So, I am nine months pregnant… I needed these cookies yesterday. Needed. So good, quick and easy. You can do a variation of M&M/Chocolate chip ratio.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup M&M’s
1/2 cup chocolate chip

Cream together butter, pudding mix and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, then add into butter mix. Fold in chocolate chip and M&M’s.

Drop by the tablespoonful onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes 24-30 cookies, depending on the size you like. Enjoy!

Reese Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies with Reese Peanut Butter Cups

I was trying to clean my baking cupboard this afternoon and found an overwhelming amount of christmas chocolates left to use up. I had been melting most of the plain chocolate into candy cane bark but still had more to use – including a bag full of Reese’s Peanut Butter Bells. So, naturally – the only thing better than Reese’s – would be Reese’s wrapped in cookies. I made a couple adjustments to a recipe I found online and came up with this – delicious!!!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter softened
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups/Bells in this case

Beat butter, shortening, and sugars until well blended. Mix in egg. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; blend into butter mixture. Stir in oatmeal. Stir in peanut butter cups.  Drop by the tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets/parchment paper bake at 350 for about 12 minutes. Let cool – if you can – Enjoy!

Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesMy computer crashed so I have lost all my backlog of posts (not to mention the $400 bill for a new mac hardrive). To cheer myself up, I made these cookies http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chewy-chocolate-chip-oatmeal-cookies/detail.aspx That have been in my “must try” pile for quite some time. I cut the recipe in half, removed a tablespoon of each sugar and then also added a ¼ cup of raisins. They turned out really good! Enjoy!
