These drop cookies are best described as a lot of “stuff” held together with a little dough. I bake them year-round, but for Christmas I use red and green M&M’s.

1 stick butter or margarine
1/2 C. sugar
1/4 C. packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 C. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 C. M&M’s (mini baking chips OR regular-size candies)
1 C. raisins
1 C. chopped peanuts

Preheat the oven to 350º. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper. Cream the butter and sugars until fluffy, then mix in the egg. Add the dry ingredients and then stir in the candies, raisins, and peanuts. Drop by rounded tablespoons, about 2 inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until firm. Cool for a couple minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Makes about 30.
