Jewel Cookies

Since I have today off from work, I decided to bake cookies to freeze for Easter. I usually make these cookies for Christmas, but they are prefect for any holiday (just get the right colored M&Ms).

1 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1 1/3 cups M&Ms ( I chose pastel colors for Easter)
granulated sugar as needed

Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla.
Combine flour and baking soda.
Add to creamed mixture until blended.
Stir in M&Ms.
Shape into 1 inch balls.
Place on cookie sheet (either greased or covered with parchment paper) about 2 inches apart.
Dip a glass in water and then dip into sugar.
Flatten the balls of dough.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Let cool for 1 minute.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

The end result:

Happy baking and snacking!
