Cooking Thursday

I made these cookies last week and thought I should share the recipe.  It's an oldie, but a goodie!  My mom made these when I was a kid, so this recipe has been around a while.  She often made them with chocolate chips, but we love them with M&M's.  They're a tender, light cookie and are yummy!

Angel Cookies

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
16 ounces M&M's or chocolate chips

Cream shortening and sugars.  Add egg and vanilla, then blend in dry ingredients.
Stir in M&M's or chocolate chips.  Drop on ungreased cookie sheet. 
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Coincidentally, I've had more than my share of cookies today, but seeing these still make me want more!
