My son Talal really wanted to make some cookies with M&Ms earlier this week so I thought it would be fun to make a stick cookie instead of the traditional round one. These are so much prettier and they are much easier to dunk into your milk. You could use about any candy that you would like on to or even chocolate chips if you want. I found that it is better to gently cut while they are still warm so that it is not hard when they cool completely and can break.
1/2 cup sunflower oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mini m&ms
1. Pre-heat oven to 375F. In a large mixing bowl add oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix well with a hand mixer then add flour, baking soda and salt, gradually add sugar mixture.
2. On a non-stick baking mat or greased baking sheet carefully make dough flat the width of the baking sheet with a inch or two of room left of the long side so you have one long rectangle. Sprinkle M&Ms on top and gently press down into dough.
3. Bake for about 15 minutes (until sides are golden). Cool for 5 minutes then carefully cut with a sharp knife once lengthwise and then several from the other side. Allow to completely cool.
