This is valentine's treat #1 that I enjoyed making this weekend. I made these cookies on Saturday and they have gone very fast! Also, the recipe isn't limited to Valentine's day. Switch out the m&ms and you can make them any day of the year!
I was excited because I had almost all of the ingredients on hand, which is always exciting when trying a new recipe.
Cream together shortening, sugars, eggs, and vanilla thoroughly. Then gradually add in the flour and mix well.
Stir in m&ms and chocolate chips...
I used my heart-shaped cookie cutter on some of them, but not all of them so that I wouldn't waste too much cookie!
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 Teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 cup m&ms
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
