Having a picnic with the children? We are having one tomorrow, so I baked pie shells for strawberry pie and whipped up some M & M Minis Cookie Muffins.
M & M Minis Cookie Muffins
1 king-size container of M & M Minis
1 1/2 cups Pillsbury self-rising flour
1/4 cup Land O' Lakes unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup Crisco shortening
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup hot water
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 2 6-count or 1 12-count muffin pans. Set aside. Cream butter, shortening and sugar. In another bowl, mix eggs, hot water and vanilla until fluffy. Add into the sugar mixture. Add in the milk and flour, alternating and ending with flour. Add in the M & M Minis. Pour into sprayed muffin tins and bake for twelve to fifteen minutes. ***Must cook at 375 degrees for them to rise correctly.
If you have extra party bags from the holidays, you can put three cookie muffins in a bag and set them at each place-setting.
