M&M Party Cookies

This is another old recipe from my mother. We like to make it with the seasonal M&M's and Elijah loves to help put the M&M's on the cookies.

1 c shortening
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 ts vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c flour
1 ts baking soda
1 ts salt
1 1/2 c M&M's

Blend together shortening and sugars. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Add dry ingredients. Use cookie scoop to put 1-1 1/2 inch balls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Place M&M's on top of balls, pressing in lightly (alternatively you could mix the candies into the dough). Bake at 375 until just golden and set, 7-10 minutes, do not over bake. Let cool on cookie sheet then transfer to wire rack.
