   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           butter or margarine
    1      cup           granulated sugar
    1      large         egg
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    2      cups          all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1      pkg           M&M’s Baking Bits (either flavor) -- (12 oz.)
                         granulated sugar -- as needed
 
   Preheat oven to 350 degrees.	  Cream together butter and sugar until light and
 fluffy; add egg and   vanilla.  Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed
 mixture just until   blended.	Stir in M&M’s Chocolate Baking Bits.  Shape dough
 into 1-inch   balls.  Place on greased cookie sheets about 2-inches apart.  With
 bottom   of a glass dipped in sugar, flatten dough very slightly so as not to
 crush	 the baking bits.  (NOTE: Very important to keep the balls of dough small
   and just barely flattened because these SPREAD out a lot.)  Bake 10 to 12  
 minutes or until edges are light golden; let cool 1 minute before removing   to
 wire racks to cool completely.  Store in tightly covered containers.
