- This variation works for a Jewish celebration where you want to give the cookies a "Jewish" flair with the blue color.
- Chips Makes 6 dozen 2" cookies
- * Note: I separated out all the blue, orange and brown M&Ms and used those.
- This would be great fun for small children! (Both the M&M Baking Bits and Ghirardelli chips are OU-D.)
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream margarine with sugars till light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir flour with baking soda, salt and cinnamon; add in to cream mix, mixing well. Stir in oats. Mix in chocolate chips and M&Ms.
- Drop by rounded Tbsp. onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 min for a chewy cookie, 10-12 min for a crisp cookie. Cold 1 minute on cookie sheet, then transfer to wire cooling racks. Store in tightly covered container or possibly freeze.
- Makes about 6 dozen 2-inch cookies.
