Mom's M & M Cookies

Since I'm reaping the benefits of my mom's kitchen this week (read: all sharp knives!), I thought I would share one of her most popular cookie recipes. Just ask the college students that mobbed our house last night. This chewy/crunchy goodness will disappear in no time!

Mom's M & M Cookies

2 C butter
2 C sugar
2 C brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 C flour
5 C oatmeal (after measuring, blend to powder in a blender/food processor)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
4 C chocolate chips
M & M's to decorate the tops of cookies

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together the butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix flour, powdered oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in another bowl. Add to batter and mix thoroughly. Blend in chocolate chips.

Place golf ball sized balls of dough two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and slightly flatten each one with the bottom of a glass. Press seven M & M's onto each cookie.

Bake for 7 minutes and then switch to an opposite position (if on top, switch with bottom shelf, or turn front to back of oven) for another 4-5 minutes until done.
