Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened (no substitutes)
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/4 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1 to 2 cups M&M's® Chocolate Candies


Preheat oven to 300°F.

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla thoroughly using an electric mixer. Gradually blend in flour and corn starch. Stir in 1 cup candies, if desired.

Form into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheets. (Note: if dough is too dry to work with, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached). Gently flatten each cookie using fingers OR a flat-bottomed drinking glass (dipped in sugar to prevent sticking). Press in additional candies to decorate.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bottoms begin to brown.

Cool for 5 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Decorating Tip: Microwave 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon shortening in a small resealable plastic bag on HIGH (100%) for 30 to 60 seconds, until melted. Snip off corner of bag and drizzle chocolate over cookies. While chocolate is still soft, decorate with additional candies.
