M & M's Cookies
Preheat the oven to 375º. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup softened butter + 1 lightly beaten egg + 1 teaspoon vanilla. Mix until well blended. Add the cookie mix and stir to mix all the ingredients together. Spray two cookie sheets lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Drop the cookie batter by rounded spoonfuls, 2" apart, onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 375º for about 12 minutes or until the edges are very lightly browned. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheets for about 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
