M&M Valentine's Cookies

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...

Put dough on greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

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!
