Gluten Free M&M Chocolate Cookies

                 M&M Chocolate Cookies

     Boy, you know when it rains it pours!  The last two weeks have just been a nightmare of sickness, we can thank the Jr. High School and High Schools for this!!  They are SO strict with the kids missing any school, you have to have an appendage missing or be in the Hospital to get excused, that is why all the kids go to school really sick, until they cough so much the administration sends them home, SERIOUSLY!!!  Thank you all so much for sharing, both my kids get the retched cold, then cough, then husband and last, but not least ME!  
     Now, I don't know about the rest of you girls and guys, but most people I know who are Celiacs or GF, usually have other autoimmune issues....myself included; so when I get a little cold it turns into a HUGE  ordeal!!   So my soapbox today is to please, lets stay home if we are sick, wash our hands and NOT share the love! 
       Now onto my cookies, I found this in a magazine a while back and they looked delicious!    When I decided to make these I only had Christmas M&M's in the house, hence the Red and Green.  I took these to my sister in law's surprise Birthday Party, and several people asked where I bought them from, they said they looked to good to be homemade! Not too good to be GF, because I didn't tell anyone to start with, until everyone said they loved them.  I hope you like them too.
 Happy Baking, Natalie

Adapted from M&M's
-2 cups softened butter 
-2 cups sugar
-1 1/2 cups brown sugar(packed)
-4 large eggs
-2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
-5 cups Pamela's Bread Flour
-2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
-3 tsp Baking Soda
-1/2 tsp salt 
-A bag of M&M's(use what you need)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, spray the pans with cooking spray.  Bake for 10-12 minutes for a crispy edge and chewy middle.

-Cream together the butter and sugars until creamy.
-Next add vanilla, cocoa, salt, baking soda and eggs, beat until combined well.  Scrape down the edges.
-Then add the flour, mix well.
**Important part here, don't add the M&M's, they will be beat to death !!! Just roll them into balls, push down lightly in the middle and place the M&M's on the dough and they will look pretty. *** It made approximately 66 cookies...I might have eaten a few :)

My favorite things this past two weeks are: Kleenex tissues, by the case load and Ricola cough drops, the only cough drops that don't taste nasty!  We've living off this stuff!
