chocolate chip m&m cookies...

I am a cookie snob. There, I said it. These cookies are the BOMB! It doesn't get much better than this folks. This recipe makes a BIG batch of cookies...the good news is that the dough freezes beautifully. If you don't need 6+ dozen cookies in one shot (and why wouldn't you) just scoop dough onto cookie sheets and place in freezer. Once frozen place into freezer bags. The beauty of this is that if you have a hankering for one or two cookies, and who doesn't from time to time, just pull from freezer and bake. You're welcome.

1 1/2 cups shortening
1/2 cup butter; room temp
2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar 
4 eggs 
2 tsp vanilla 
5 cups flour 
2 tsp salt 
2 tsp baking soda 
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips 
1 cup m&m's 
1/2 cup m&m's; set aside

Cream butter and shortening; add both sugars and cream together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, add vanilla and mix well. Combine dry ingredients and add in three batches, mixing just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and m&m's. Scoop onto lined baking sheets. Use reserved m&m's & place 1-2 m&m's on top of each cookie before baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 min.
