Cooking Thursday

The recipe I'm sharing today is for some cookie bars with M&M's in them. Yum! They make a big pan full so they work well when you need to bring something to share.

M & M Squares
1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup oleo
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups M & M's

Beat together peanut butter, oleo and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Mix flour, oatmeal, soda and salt.  Add to oleo mixture.  Mix in 1 cup M & M's.  Press into jelly roll pan.  Sprinkle remaining M & M's over dough.  Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Yum! I was just thinking about making M&M cookies with my kids. I wonder if this same recipe would work with drop cookies instead of bars?

Hi Mari! This looks fabulous! And if I make it with red, white and blue M and M's it will be so patriotic too! I'm sure your family looks forward to this.

Love that peanut butter too :)
