1 cup butter or margarin
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
.5 tsp salt
as much candy* as you please
Makes two dozen cookies... if you don't eat any of the dough. Otherwise plan on less. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. No need to grease cookie sheets if you don't feel like it.
Combine butter, eggs, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and beat at low speed until all combined. Stir in candy* by hand.
Cook 12-16 minutes or until golden brown.
*: "candy" is defined as M&Ms, walnuts, or any other small, reasonable and cookable sugar substances.
