tasty tuesday-santa cookies

this one is a two-fer girls. the first one i saw in a magazine and haven't tried, but they are darn cute. the second is the recipe we use to make cookies for santa every year. the good thing is that you can change the M&Ms accordingly and then they can become easter bunny cookies. enjoy!!

Nutter Butter Santa Cookies

Tucker Family Santa Cookies (M&M cookies)
1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups M&Ms divided

Cream together shortening and sugars. beat in eggs and vanilla. sift together dry ingredients until combined. add in 3/4-1 cup of M&Ms. roll into tsp or Tbsp size balls onto a cookie sheet (i use a stone baking pan). slightly press the top and add 2-3 M&Ms on top. bake at 350 for around 10 minutes or until lightly golden. yields 2 1/2 dozen Tbsp size or 4 dozen tsp size.

I just noticed that neither one of these pictures depict the M&M cookies in their entirety (is that a word?? oh well, you get the gist.)
do yall remember going to albertson's when we were little and going to the cookie section? well, they had the BEST cookies, in my little opinion, and these taste a LOT like those!!

LOOK WHO'S MARRIED!!!!! said...

Go back to my JUNE entries...yes, I did a 100 things about me...in groups of 10.
I was born Mormon.
What religion are you? If you go back and search, most religions only believe in until death do you part....as far as I know, Mormons are the only ones that believe in eternal marraige.
It's the main reason why people start to research my religion....

Thanks for all your questions!!!
