Christmas Cookies


                                         2 1/2 cups flour
                                         1 tsp baking soda
                                         1 tsp salt
                                         1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
                                         1 cup packed brown sugar (or 1/2 cup packed splenda brown sugar)
                                         1/2 cup granulated sugar (do NOT substitute splenda)
                                         2 eggs
                                         2 tsp vanilla
                                         1 package (12 oz.) m&ms (or chocolate chips)


(Preheat oven to 350 degrees.)
1.  Beat butter, brown sugar, & granulated sugar in a large bowl until light & fluffy. 
Beat in eggs & vanilla.

2. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, & salt. Add flour mixture gradually to butter mixture and beat until well blended.

3. Stir in m&ms (or chocolate chips).

4. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

5. Cool & enjoy!

Cookies turn out best when this is your view from the kitchen and you play Christmas music while baking.
