4c. flour

1c. sugar

1Tbs. baking power

1/4t. salt

1 1/2c. butter-flavored Crisco

2 eggs slightly beaten

1/3 c. milk

1t. vanilla

M&M candies

Powder sugar

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until well blended. Add eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Mix thoroughly. Use hands if necessary to mix so that when a small amount of dough is squeezed together it will not crumble. If it appears too dry, add just a little more milk.

Take about a rounded tablespoon of dough and form a small cylindar shaped cookie.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Gently press four M&M's into the cookie dough.

Bake at 375 degrees for eight to 10 minutes, or until the bottom of the cookie is lightly browned.

Remove from pan and place on a cooling rack. Sprinkle power sugar (if desired) after the cookies have cooled. This recipe will make 2 to 3 dozen depending on the size of each cylinder. This recipe can be doubled.
