M&M Cookies

These cookies were another recipe that I decided to make for February's Baking GALS.  I thought that pairing these with Valentine's edition M&Ms would make a fun and festive cookie.  The cookie dough was a had a wonderful vanilla taste and with M&Ms both mixed into the batter and pressed on the top you get an M&M in every bite.
