M & M Cookies / Pecan Cookies

M & M Cookies / Pecan Cookies
 
My sister, Debra, began the tradition of bringing M & M Cookies to our parent's house every Christmas.  We love M & M Cookies but our daddy didn't like cookies with candy in them, so I began making Pecan Cookies for him.  My husband and son also took a real liking to the Pecan Cookies.  When I mix up the batter for the cookies I divide the batter before adding the M & M's or Pecans.  In one half of the batter, I add M & M's and in the other half, I add Pecans.  We had both M & M and Pecan Cookies for our dessert this past Sunday.  There were no complaints, only compliments!
 
M & M Cookies / Pecan Cookies 
 
1 cup Crisco Shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cup of M & M's or 1 cup chopped pecans
 
Blend shortening and sugar.  Beat in vanilla and eggs.  Sift flour and then add to sugar and egg mixture.  Mix well.  Stir in one cup M & M's.  Reserve remaining M & M's for decorations. 
 
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 min. 
 
Add pecans instead of M & M's for Pecan Cookies.
