This is the first time I've made these cookies - I love them. I used butter, not margarine, and decreased the baking time to about 18". The are very firm and crunchy cookies, which I like.

I have been making these cookies for years. I use real butter in place of the margarine. This is the best M & M cookie recipe because the oats prevent the candies from sinking to the bottom of the cookie and burning on the sheet during baking. They are a staple for every holiday in my house. As soon as those holiday M & M's show up in stores, these cookies get made in my house!

Great cookie, great taste. However instead of margarine, I used land of lakes butter and shorten the bake time just a bit. My family gobbled them up.
