Ann Romney's M&M's Cookies


Although I am disappointed in yesterday's presidential election results, I am grateful to live in a free country that gives us the right to choose our leaders.  I always feel so patriotic when I vote! 

Here is Ann Romney's cookie recipe, which coincidentally lost to Michelle Obama's cookie recipe in the Family Circle magazine's cookie contest between the two potential first ladies, but only by a small margin!:)  Enjoy them-my family loved them!

print this recipe

1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter
1 Tbsp. light corn syrup
3 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tsp. baking soda
6 oz. chocolate chips
2/3 cup M&M's (I used mini m&m's)

Heat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, cream sugars, butter, peanut butter and corn syrup on high speed until well combined. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix together oats and baking soda. Stir into peanut butter mixture until combined. Gently mix in chocolate chips and M&M's.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
