My sister in-law’s grandmother (Sweet Betty) makes these incredible M&M cookies.  Whenever there is a celebration at their house, these always seem to be on the kitchen counter.  They’re not hard and crunchy like so many M&M cookies — these are really light and soft.  It’s like eating a muffin top with M&M’s  They’re simply irresistible, and why wouldn’t they be, she been making them for over 30 years.
