MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2014

Crazy good. I did go to 3c of flour as suggested below. Also substituted 1/2c of semisweet morsels for 1/2c of the M&M for some melty chocolate texture. Yielded about 50 smaller cookies.

This is a basic cookie recipe you can use many different ways. However you need to use three cups of flour to this recipe. They will not come out to thin and will not need to be refrigerated before baking. Tried this recipe added the three cups of flour. Turned out just fine.
