Oatmeal and M&M Cookies

This is another recipe I got from This Mommy Cooks.  

These cookies were fun to make with the kiddos and they just LOVED having the M&Ms as a special treat.  We thoroughly enjoyed these and had so many to share!

Oatmeal M&M Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (If you don't like cinnamon, half this amount.)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
2 cups M&Ms

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and M&Ms; mix well. I used my stand mixer for these.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Makes about 4 dozen
