M&M Christmas Cookies
This is a very simple recipe, however, there are couple of things that set this cookie apart from a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe. First, you need room temperature UNSALTED butter it creates a slightly different flavor then regular Chocolate Chip cookies. Second, this cookie is very versatile, you can decorate them with sprinkles or other Christmas decorations or place decorative sticks at the bottom of the cookie and turn it into a cookie pop.
